Really normal US?

Abnormal liver functions have may causes. If overweight, can be due to fat inside the liver, which can be seen on Ultrasound. Liver infection (hepatitis) or inflammation are other causes. Consider additional blood work to look for signs of prior hepatitis. Many drugs can also cause increase in liver enzymes. Review your meds with your primary care provider.

thick blood , high inflammation levels abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?

This is serious

Chest-lung
I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than HealthTap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time.

Why are cbc and liver panel tests done?

Monitoring

Liver
CBC tells you if you are anemic, and if you have the right number of white cells. Liver tests check for liver damage that can occur from medications you are taking.

Can prednisone affect liver panel tests?

Usually not!

Prednisone
It is a n unusual complication primarily of high dose prednisione. People with risk factors for fatty liver, ie. metabolic syndrome, are more prone to this, since steroids are diabetogenic and cause insulin resistance. But few patientws not in this category get increased LFTs!
