The values are not that high as in failure but ther are mildly raised which can be due to mild to moderate injury to liver most likely by drinking. This is the time that you can reverse this by decreasing drinking and it will prevent further damage..

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
