Brief Answer: a minimum of 3 months Detailed Answer: Hi, It would take a minimum of 3 months for the elevated liver enzymes to return to normal on an average. It also depends on the number of the elevated level, if it is in hundreds or thousands. Also, co-morbid conditions, and other liver function parameters play a role too in the improvement. Let me know if you have any more specific queries regarding the same. Regards,

Brief Answer: Yes, that is correct Detailed Answer: Hi, Since your raised levels are due to the binge drinking, it should settle down in less than a month's time. Binge drinking is an acute condition that causes acute stress on the liver. If you abstain from alcohol completely, the raised liver enzyme levels would return to normal within a month's time. Hope this is clear. Regards,
