I am reviewing it.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 16 days ago.

You have the following;

1) Fatty enlarged liver; occur due to overweight issue or alcohol. It is causing high ALT 222.

2) Gall bladder stone; if you do not have pain after meals this may be an incidental finding and may not need removal.

3) Central cortical cyst in the kidney is benign and usually, no treatment is needed.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Just weight reduction and dietary measures will take care of it.

It is an absolutely reversible issue and not worrisome.
