What is the reason for that significant weight loss? There are other liver conditions which result in abnormal liver enzymes besides viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease or drug-induced hepatitis. I wonder if there is relationship between the weight loss last 2 years and current abnormal liver test. You should be evaluated by a gastroenterologist or a liver specialist.

If your weight loss was unintended, it would suggest a disease process that may be affecting the liver as well. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a gastroenterologist. Wish you good health!
