Fatty Liver: The most common cause is fatty liver disease. This is particularly common in people who are diabetic, have elevated cholesterol or triglycerides, and are overweight. If the liver enzymes are normal, it is most likely benign fat. However, if the liver enzymes are elevated, it means that there is inflammation in the liver which can lead to injury. Talk with your doctor about next steps.
