Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The blood work could be due to the recent medications you just came off.
Also you have a fatty liver and being overweight could have contributed to this.
Could you upload the reports so that I can look at the reference ranges?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care

Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
The liver tests are within the normal range, why would you worry about them ?
No question of cirrhosis here, it is just fatty liver, and has more to do with your excess weight.
I find your labs normal, and nothing worrisome at all.
Take care.
