Thanks for your question

Your symptoms of burning in chest along with deranged liver function test and triglycerides shows a possibility of Peptic Ulcer disease with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).

Your triglycerides are high, therefore, your abnormal LFTs could be due to fatty liver disease.

If you are alcoholic then Alcoholic liver disease be a possibility

Get consultation with a gasteroenterologist and have ultrasound abdomen done along with hepatitis B and C serology by Elisa
