Since you have not mentioned the type and value of any particular liver enzyme ,I am going to tell you in general.
The most common causes for high liver enzymes are consumption of alcohol,diabetes,triglycerides,obesity,consumption of lot of pain killers etc and various types of hepatitis.
Your life style change can normalise these levels in few months time.
What to do...
Quit alcohol.
Reduce your calorie intake and reduce your weight.
Avoid sweets and deep fried foods.
Avoid junk foods and colas.
Consume fresh fruits and green vegetables.
Do regular aerobic exercises.
Take super B complex vitamin with 1000 mg of VIT C.
In next few months time,you should be all right.
Consult a gastroenterologist if liver enzymes persist or get elevated,even after the lifestyle changes.

General & Family Physician Dr. Luchuo Engelbert Bain's  Response
Hi and thanks for the query,
Depending on the cause, whether its an acute of chronic liver inflammation, the condition could be reversible, or at times irreversible. Its advisable to test for conditions like hepatitis B and C and other additional enzymes could be asked for. An abdominal ultrasound is also very important to complete the clinical evaluation.
I suggest you book an appointment with a gastroenterologist. While waiting avoid substances that could cause lesions to the liver like drugs, paracetamol and alcohol.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
