Welcome to health care magic!

I have gone through your question and found that you have raised liver enzymes, raised fasting blood glucose, fatty liver, and you have been taking Liv 52 from past two weeks. what I found important apart from these is your weight 77kgs. this is more for your height.

You are having metabolic syndrome, here there is increased lipids, raised sugar level along with obesity/over weight. This is a very common conditions seen now a days.

From my clinical experience I can say that fatty liver is not adequately responding to the present treatment.
You have not mentioned if you take alcohol, as this is one of the common causes of fatty liver .

You will benefit significantly by reducing your weight.

Had I been at your place I would go to the doctor again, he may give you medicines to reduce cholesterol (like atorvastatin etc. ), this would further help the liver to get better.
You may get a repeat sugar levels done to confirm diabetes and see if there is a need to start medicine or can be done with diet control measures. Getting thyroid status will rule out hypothyroidism, which may be related to all these symptoms.

I have found following dietary measures helpful, in reducing cholesterol and sugar along with weight loss:
1. cut down oil and reduce sugar from diet
2. daily half hour walk/ workouts
3. reduce starch intake , like potatoes, rice, refined flour etc
4. green tea is found to be helpful
5. limited intake of sweets and sweet fruits

Liv 52 does not usually causes increase in sugar levels.
Hope the answer helps you in getting better
