How concerning is my blood work?

I am a 25 year old female. I don't drink. On a routine blood test about a year ago it was discovered that I had elevated liver enzymes. A month later I had a retest and they had gone down to an acceptable level. Several months later I had another series of blood tests and my enzymes were only slightly elevated but this was cause for concern for my doctor. I had an normal ultrasound, I tested negative for hepatitis A,B,C. I was sent to a liver specialist who said he'd monitor me for 6 months and then decide from there since my enzymes looked to be trending down.

My follow-up appointment is coming up soon and I am wondering if I should be concerned that my liver enzymes have not gone back to normal after over a year of abnormal testing?

I am not on any medications that could raise my enzymes and the liver doctor couldn't specify why my liver is behaving this way. I am not overweight. My blood work results are below:

10/2011 AST - 400s ALT - 400s ALP - ?
11/2011 AST - 100s ALT - 100s ALP - ?
6/2012 AST - 65 ALT - 52 ALP -?
7/2012 AST - 58 ALT- 49 ALP - 229 (This was when I saw the liver specialist)
8/2012 AST - 110 ALT 65 ALP 174
9/2012 AST - 50 ALT - 41 ALP 158 (I was on steroids for part of october for eczema )
10/2012 AST - 55 ALT - 49 ALP 153
1/2013 AST - 68 ALT - 55 ALP - 304

where the upper limit of normal is
35,34,124 respectively
