Although there are various causes for high liver enzymes but the most common causes are Diabetes,obesity,high triglycerides,alcoholism,use of plenty of sweets and junk food,use of herbal medications,antibiotics,anti seizure medicines etc,various types of hepatitis etc.
Get tested for diabetes,lipid profile,ultra sound abdomen.
If any abnormality found in above tests,rectify it.
If no abnormality found in these investigations then try to change your lifestyle by reducing weight,avoiding sweets and junk food and doing regular exercises and taking fresh fruits and green vegetables.Do this for 8 weeks and check your liver enzymes.
If they are still high ,then go for CT abdomen,liver biopsy and testing of hepatitis markers and consultba Gastroenterologist.
