Brief Answer:
Fatty liver.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to HCM. Thanks for your query.

There is a borderline increase in your liver enzyme value. Don't worry at this stage.

Being a known diabetic and hypercholesterolemia you may be having fatty liver.

These elevated values may indicate towards early stage of Non Alcoholic liver disease.
In this stage there is no need for medical intervention.

I would advice my patient to follow diet, exercise and maintain ideal body weight for height and age.

Alcohol use needs to be restricted.

It is advisable to repeat the Liver function test once a year.

Keep a check on blood sugar and lipids.
