Welcome to HCM.
It would have been better if you would have mentioned names of enzymes and levels of enzymes.
Still any rise in liver enzymes indicate inflammation to liver.
Many reasons are behind it.
Commonest is alcohol intake or medicines like statins , tylenol etc
Hepatitis is also one of the common. If you do not experience any symptoms then no need to worry. Most of the times it might be drug / alcohol.
Repeat test after 6 months and keep follow up. If still enzymes remain high, you need to rule ou cause by consulting physician.
Your diet is good. No need to worry about diet.
Cut down/ stop if possible your alcohol intake. Enzymes will come down to normal.
I hope I have answered your query. In case of doubt I shall be happy to help you.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
