How high?
Do you have cirrhosis?
Do you have fatty liver disease or other liver diseases?
What meds are you on?
Do you drink, even only occasionally?
Do you work with chemicals, paints or fumes?

I am stumped. I hope your docs report this to the drug company. You are in good hands, so that doesn't worry me. If your doc offers an explanation, please let me know.
