In brief: Find out the cause

You have to find out the cause.
The most common causes relate to alcohol use, medication side effects, obesity, and auto-immune liver diseases. A gastroenterologist or hepatologist are usually the most helpful doctors in figuring these things out. Usually, if you eliminate the cause, the liver inflammation goes away. Left untreated, it can lead to cirrhosis and ultimately cancer.

In brief: Also virus

Hepatitis (liver inflammation), both acute and chronic, are commonly caused by a variety of virus, leading to hepatitis a, b, c, d, e.
The only way to diagnose these are through blood test.
