2x elevated LFT's: You are describing liver tests that are two times elevated over "normal" for a prolonged period of time. Persistent elevation over 6 months or more may warrant liver biopsy, & certainly warrants a comprehensive battery of blood tests to rule out infection, metabolic problems, autoimmune disease, familial liver diseases, etc. Ask your family doctor for a referral to a gi/liver specialist.

Lose weight: The second opinion is for you to lose weight through diet and exercise, easier said than done! Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
