Hi Smith
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
From your reports we can see that your enzymes are gradually elevated.This denotes a hepatic damage in progress.This could be due to viral infection or any drug.
Do you have symptoms of jaundice like yellow urine or yellow sclera.Any features of breathlessness?
Please mention if you are on any drug.Did you get your Hepatitis viral screen done?

Please let us know these details and we can give you better advise.
Take care.
