Lots can cause this abnormality- drinking alcohol, a "fatty" liver if you are overweight, many different medications- including acetaminophen or prescription drugs, viral hepatitis ( Hepatitis B and C ), another inflammatory condition affecting the liver, or even iron overload if you have needed lots of transfusions for your anemia.
It does need further work up by a doctor to assess which of these causes it is. And probably an Ultrasound of the liver or a CT scan to make sure there is no abnormality ( blockage/ gall stone/ tumor etc) causing this.
See your doctor and they shouldget to the bottom of it, or refer you to a Gastroenterologist.
