Hi colleens, Welcome to HealtcareMagic Forum.
It would have been better if you had given me the complete LFT report. Abnormal liver tests may be detected in the blood in a variety of liver conditions. They could be Acute Viral Hepatitis A or B, Liver damage with drugs like Acetaminophen or chronic alcoholism causing Liver cirrhosis. Mild to Moderate changes could be seen in fatty liver, diabetes mellitus or Obesity or Hepatitis C infection. I would suggest you get yourself thoroughly evaluated further by a Gastroenterologist to rule out the exact cause.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
