Can Gilberts disease cause high Alt 78 and Ast 50 and bilirubin 1.2 ?Diagnosed with fatty liver in July. Had us done in Jan it showed little fat.

Not usually

Sgot
Gilbert's causes a "cosmetic" abnormality in bilirubin (bile pigment) metabolism. Does not cause changes on AST, ALT-that reflects mild inflammation of liver cells. Could be due to overweight, needs, alcohol, infection, immune inflammation, other.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Ana positive c3&c4 low triglycerides now high and dr said I had fatty liver due to weight gain no symptoms of lupus could it be causing fatty liver?

Whoa

Fatty_liver
Plenty of perfectly healthy, not just lupus-free, people have positive ANA especially at low titer, and lowish C3 and C4 (which are poor lupus screens anyway). Nothing says "lupus" to me, but I am very concerned about your fatty liver and weight gain. By far the best treatment for "nonalcoholic steatohepatitis" is to find some fitness activity you like and do a LOT of it. Good luck.

Lupus fatty liver advice please?

Perhaps

Fatty_liver
Lupus can be dangerous depending on its severity. Lupus and fatty liver aren't really related. Fatty liver is usually related to alcohol consumption or the metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure). Fatty liver with inflammation can lead to cirrhosis, generally takes decades to occur. Lupus is an autoimmune disease and their are autoimmune liver diseases too
