Brief Answer:
NAFLD.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Yes your liver enzymes are raised which requires evaluation of the cause.
The most common causes of such liver derangement's are
1.Alcohol
2.Viral hepatitis
3.Non alcoholic fatty liver disease
4.Drugs.
Since you don't consume any alcohol, so alcohol induced hepatitis is ruled out. So, we should evaluate the other causes, and if no other cause is found, i would attribute the dysfunction to Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) as you have evidence of fatty liver in Ultrasound.
For this you need to reduce your weight, reduce fat in diet and if required your doctor may prescribe you Ursedeoxycolic Acid for the same.
I would advise you to get following investigations done:
1. HBsAg for Hepatitis B.
2. Anti HCV Antibody for Hepatitis C.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
