Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response
You liver enzymes are indeed abnormal, and you should undergo further testing by a specialist. A medication cannot be recommended until the cause of your abnormal liver enzymes is found.
Therefore you should be tested for viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C), autoimmune liver disease, hemochromatosis, alpha one antytripsin deficiency. You will also need an ultrasound of the liver to make sure there are no stones or tumors in your biliary tree (unlikely if you do not have pain). Also you should avoid alcohol if you drink, and lose weight if you are obese.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
These are mildly elevated parameters.
Before any medicine you need to do liver ultrasound to find is there any particular cause of your abnormal findings. Most common causes are gallbladder stones,hepatitis, alcohol and methabolic syndrome. All these disorders are primary treated by changing life habbits,avoiding alcohol,bad food and toxic drugs. Stones should be managed surgically. There are sme hepatoprotective drugs and ursodeoxicolic acid, but before taking it you should find the exact cause. There is no reason to hurry,nothing will happen in short time. Wish you good health.
