High ALT, GGT, and Uric Acid

I just got my blood test results back (taken for insurance qualification), and the results show the following:
Uric Acid = 8.9 "HIGH"
SGPT (ALT) = 61 "HIGH"
Gamma Glutamyltransferase (GGT) = 89 "HIGH"

I have no adverse health symptoms, and never get "sick". I have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. I do, however, consume alcohol regularly. It is not uncommon for me to have a drink or two, five or six nights of the week. I realize that this may be more alcohol than is recommended, but I'm curious if this could be why the above levels are "HIGH".

Are these levels potentially related to each other (high liver enzymes connected with high uric acid)? Are these levels alarmingly high? Too much alcohol?

Thanks for your opinions.
