Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

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.
