Thanks for writing in.
The presence of such high levels of liver enzymes suggests active inflammation anf functional derrangement of the liver cells. this can be due to avariety of causes such as, hepatitis B, C infection, cirrhosis, fatty liver, portal fibrosis, auto immune hepatitis or even drug induced. You will have to undergo a battery of radiological and hematological investigations to find the cause and rectify it at the earliest.
