    Any of the hepatitis viruses

    HIV infection

    Liver cancer





    NSAID use

    The list goes on and on. Liver enzymes are rather non-specific.

    A wide range of medicines can damage the liver. Which is one of the reasons to not take pills outside of the range prescribed by the MD.

    Fat. I was diagnosed a few years ago with fatty liver that caused my liver enzymes to elevate. At the time I was eating horribly due to family loss and it caused this. There are other things such as diseases and genes that could also play a role
