In brief: Multiple causes

There are many causes of liver damage.
Excess alcohol use is a major cause. Hepatitis and abnormal iron storage can also be the reason. Fat storage in the liver may be a problem if it becomes extensive. Autoimmune diseaes is also a possibility. If you have abnormal liver tests or suspect a problem, you should discuss the situation with your doctor now.
