Response from Dr. McGovern

Along with the fatty infiltration, you should have testing for hepatitis C and B. Your liver function tests are concerning. I would have evaluation of your INR blood test and albumin to see how well your liver is functioning. You may need further evaluation by a liver specialist and possible liver biopsy.
