Hello I'm Dr Chip
Have these liver enzymes been elevated in the past?
Any problems with abdominal pain?
Your levels aren't high enough to suggest hepatitis A, B, or C
But when we take in the high LDL you probably have what's called fatty liver syndrome or steatohepatitis.
That's not a viral hepatitis but it involves fatty deposits in the liver
My next step, were I your doctor, would be a liver ultrasound to check that out.
It's not as serious as it might sound.
It can be treated with proper diet and, if needed, weight loss, and with a statin like Crestor for the cholesterol
Please let me know if you need any more information
It can sometimes be poor diet but it isn't a genetic disorder
High cholesterol levels can be one cause
Insulin resistance or pre-diabetes can also be associated with it
