Brief Answer:
hi there

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear i can understand your concern
There is a history of PCOS which might be associated with some insulin resistance factor.
This kind of insulin resistance will increase the fatty acid deposition in the liver and causes slight but reversible increase of liver enzymes(ALT,AST)
with the use of metformin and weight reduction the elevated liver enzymes might return to normal in no time.
i suggest you to formulate a diet plan and exercise plan and concentrate on weight reduction.
i wish you good health and happy life
Regards
DR XXXXXXX
