A high liver count means that the liver enzymes are at a high rate. Some causes of a high liver count are Hepatitis A, B, or C, obesity, heart failure, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. It could also signal liver cancer, Mono, and cirrhosis.

Your liver count could be high if you drink a lot of alcohol or you could possibly have the Hepatitis virus (usually type C). Blood centers perform a licensed test for the HCV virus when you donate blood.
