Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for providing the additional information. The most common cause of deranged liver function is fatty liver disease. You need to stop drinking alcohol. If you are obese, you need to reduce weight. There are some other causes of abnormal liver function tests as well and you need to get tested for those causes and it includes testing for viral infections hep B and C. Try to reduce fatty food intake and increase your physical activity. If the cholesterol levels are persistently high, you can consider taking medications like atorvastatin. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
