Suffering from abnormal liver function, metabolic syndrome. Does this indicate liver failure?

I had an abnormal liver function last year and was was seeing a gastroenterologist . I ve been discharged early this year in February and every 3 months I m having blood test and was due again in September. My question is I m going on holiday next week Wednesday and I m trying to get a travel insurance and they were asking me what kind of disease do I have. I ve phoned my GP and was told to tell the travel insurance agent to say I had abnormal liver function or metabolic syndrome but she s insisting if I have liver failure or liver damage. I m not really sure what to say, would you be able to help me? Many thanks

Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM.
No one can state with out evidence that you have liver failure.
Liver failure requires prolonged / deranged coagulation.
I would advice you to get following:
1. Liver function test.
2. Viral markers
3. Ultrasound Liver
4. PT/INR.
You would be requiring these reports to get clearance.
Stay Healthy.
