Detailed Answer:
Hello Ms XXXXXXX

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service.

Your liver enzymes are mildly elevated and need close monitoring.

The cause for liver damage needs to confirmed.

Common causes that cause liver damage include viral hepatitis, alcohol consumption, taking medicines like paracetamol, autoimmune disorders or iron overload.

You must consult your local doctor to find out the cause for your elevated liver enzymes.

Drink plenty of fluids,

Do not drink alcohol,

Do not self medicate,

Repeat liver enzyme levels after 15 days to see if they have come back to normal.

I hope that answers your query. You are most welcome to ask me if you have any additional doubts or questions.

Best wishes.
