When your liver enzymes are mildly elevated and might be from your diet, what type of hepatitis is that called?

    "hepatitis" in the pure form only means inflammation (-itis) of the liver (hepa-); we use it mostly to mean Hepatitis A, B etc in the common usage. But there is no specific "type" other than saying alcoholic hepatitis, food borne hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis etc.

    You can have high liver enzymes without hepatitis. You can have it by drinking too much alcohol, eating too much pork and beef, taking drugs that process in the liver, including Tylenol and Iuprophan. You need other markers in your blood to make a full diagnosis.

    It's not hepatitis. Could be fatty liver (which is called that because there is more fat in the liver than there should be) or lots of other things.

    A "fatty" liver. (I am not sure why it is called that, but it is.)
