What causes elevated liver enzymes and fatty liver?

I just had a CT scan done, Awaiting results, but also had labs drawn. My AST was 37 and ALT 56, and Glucose was 110. I had taken Nyquil for two days (including night before) to get some sleep because of cough, etc. My Glucose came back as previously mentioned at 110. I do have a fatty liver (previous CT scan), and would say overweight. Social drinker. CT Scan prior to having labs drawn had with dye. Also had a Hall's cough drop before labs were drawn. Would this affect results. I'm just nervous. thanks.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

Fatty liver has many cause like Hepatitis B, C, Metabolic disorders, NAFLD, alcohol intake etc.

So I will suggest you to visit a Hepatologist for evaluation who will advise tests and then manage accordingly. Meanwhile there are few medicines which I found very useful in my patients are ursodeoxycholic acid and vitamin E. Do regular exercise and reduce your weight if you are overweight, avoid alcohol if you drink.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you . Wish you a good health
