If you indirect bilirubin is high I wouldnt worry much. You might be having a benign condition called Gilbert's syndrome which can cause transient increase of indirect bilirubin with normal other liver function test. What is more concerning is the fatty liver. You need to do the following to prevent further worsening of the fatty liver

1. Loose weight
2. Stop alcohol
3. Does diabetes run in your family ? - if yes have your sugars checked.

Vitamin E has shown to reduce inflammation in a fatty liver however benefit is not conclusively proven. A good healthy alcohol free lifestyle would reverse the fatty liver in due time...
