Answer by  TheresaG (31)

Elevated liver enzymes mean that some liver cells are damaged or inflamed. These cells leak certain chemicals in higher quantities than normal. Elevated liver enzymes are usually only temporary, though, and generally don't indicate a serious liver condition.


Answer by  gold (93)

Elevated liver enzymes indicate inflammation or damage to cells in the liver. Inflamed or injured liver cells may leak higher than normal amounts of certain chemicals, including liver enzymes, into the bloodstream, resulting in elevated liver enzymes on blood tests. In most cases, liver enzyme levels are elevated mildly and temporarily,and do not always signal a chronic, serious liver problem.
