In brief: Fatty liver disease

Fatty liver disease is the most common cause of abnormal lfts and is caused by excessive fat accumulation in the the liver. Fatty liver can lead to complications including hardening of the liver called cirrhosis.
If your bmi is too high, then losing weight will help mitigate your long term associated health risks. Sometimes a blood test called fibrosure helps clarify the diagnosis. Good luck!
