Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

There are many different causes for deranged liver function.
The causes include non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, alcoholic fatty liver disease, viral infections like hepatitis A, B, C and E, certain medications, autoimmune diseases, obstruction in bile duct etc.
You can discuss with your doctor and get tests done to find the cause.
I hope that answers your query.
Regards.
