Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Increase in Liver enzymes can be due to alcohol or viral or fatty changes of liver in some is associated.I advise you to stop taking alcohol if you have a habit.Pleasde mention your Viral screening status.

You can reduce weight efficiently by following regularly timed meals , low fat diet , diet rich in vitamins.You should take 5-6 liters of water a day.Practice exercises like Jogging or running.

If you have any symptoms like yellow urine , abdominal pain you should see your doctor as early as possible.

Take care.
