Liver Function Tests

I am a 47 year old male recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.  I am a moderate drinker of alcohol, two drinks per day, but not everyday, and not when I have been taking certain medications.

I recently went to my physician for a follow-up and when my blood tests returned I was shocked.  My GTP was 435, Alk-Phos was 102, CK was 260, and alcohol level was .162.  I saw the doctor at 2:30 PM and hadn't had anything to drink since the night before (1 and 1/2 glass of wine).

I am concerned about why my liver is not processing alcohol properly.  I am taking Synthroid, Prilosec, Indocin, and Celex. I had an ultrasound and was found to have a "fatty" liver.

Help!  I can't get any answers from my doctors.

Thanks for your help.
