Thanks for posting query.
There are many reasons of elevated liver enzymes without elevated bilirubin. Few of the common causes are certain medications (like statin for dyslipidemia, pain killer or NSAID etc.), alcohol, hepatitis, obesity, cirrhosis, Gall stone, pancreatitis, etc. Rarely celiac disease, Wilson disease, hemochromatosis, infection mononucleosis, heart failure etc. may be associated.
Yes cure is possible. Consult gastroenterologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Best Wishes,
