Elevated bilirubin: Your total bilirubin is at 1.4, which is mildly above the normal range. You might have a condition known as gilbert's syndrome, which is a benign condition. Rarely you would see mild elevation of total bilirubin with fatty liver infiltration, unless you are at the advance stage (liver cirrhosis). Suggest to repeat lfts in 3 months.
