Hello there
this all indicates acute hepatitis which could be viral like hepatitis A or E, or it could be due to use of medicines.
Please do his screening like Anti HAV and HAE antibodies(IGG and IGM).
Avoid use of any medicines.
Give routine diet with less spices.
Use more carbohydrate diet.
Repeat LFTs after 2 days.
Most of cases get well in a week.
