Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

I am sorry to hear about your Daughter ...

First thing that I want to clarify is that raised Liver enzymes specially ALT indicates acute liver injury , and this is not because of low body fat , but definitely because of Drinking , as Drinking damage liver cells and releases enzymes like ALT /SGOT.

At this stage if she stops Drinking and adopts healthy life styles as her Ultrasound shows no permanent damage to liver , she can recover completely and her liver will heal itself , but if she didn't stop than with time liver insult will reach to point where there will be no recovery , this is the time to help her to stop drinking .

Many Regards ***** ***** luck to her .
