Correct Diagnosis?

I have been having dull pain on my right side under my ribs for a few months. In oct 2012, my LFT showed ast- 32 alt-56 then I lost my insurance so i had to wait til June 2013 for a follow up. Ultrasound showed enlarged liver, ALT 91 AST 62, and I had 3 positive SMA tests, but negative ANA. I do have diabetes and take humulin n and I am overweight but I have been consistantly losing a few lbs/mo. I had 1 dr who thought it was autoimmune hep but i met with the specialist and he said that since I am "extremely obese" (5'5" 200lbs and falling) that it is obviously fatty liver. I dont know if I should believe this diagnosis or not. When my dr reviewed my ultrasound, she said she didnt see anything indicating that it was fatty liver.
