Hi XXXXXX,Thanks for writing in to Healthcare magic.Your liver function test is deranged and should have some cause behind this.The cause needs to be found out.Some times an erratic habit of eating fatty foods can cause Fatty liver and such changes.You should get a full liver function test done, a CRP, serology for hepatitis A,B,C and E.And an ultrasound of abdomen is also recommended.With physical examination with these reports a local physician should be able to prescribe a treatment and advise on the lifestyle as suitable.I hope the advise would be helpful for you.
