Is low functioning gallbladder with elevated liver enzymes of AST 77 ALT 142 contributed by a underlying disease? If so what diseases?

Liver disease: Isolated "low functioning gallbladder" without gallstones would not commonly cause elevation of ast/alt. This could indicated fatty liver condition, hepatitis exposure, medication causing liver inflammation, etc. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist for full liver evaluation.
