Liver enzymes: Your liver enzymes are abnormal, but not by a lot. The presence of the symptoms you mentioned makes it critical that you followup as a variety of conditions may account for your symptoms and abnormal labs.Depending on actual circumstances in the differential diagnosis should be included obesity and diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders or congenital disorders such as (rare)hemochromatosis
