Fatty Liver Disease or Genetics?

I noticed recently that my 2 year old females mouth is yellow and pink. Pink tongue and gums but it transitions to yellow near the back of her throat. Is this Fatty Liver disease or her genetics coming out?
As of now she is 18 inches long and weights 580 grams. She's always been on the bigger size and im currently trying to help her loose some weight. She gets fed a small handful of collard greens with some kale sprinkled on throughout the week. And for protein She gets 24 to 36 crickets through the week as well. She gets take out once a day to run around for about an hour or more. Her appetite, bowl movements, and overall behavior has been normal. I've read that they like to hide when they are sick and I'm scarred that her liver may be failing and she's just trying to hide it from me. I've already made an appointment on Monday for her to get checked out, but I wanted to hear some opinions from fellow owners in the meantime. I'll try to answer questions as often as I can. She's only 2 and I'm scared I'm going to lose her already and I don't want that.

There are some beardies who have that and it was no problem but have @AHBD have a look. Do you have pics? That would be really helpful

How is your dragon doing today? That's good to hear she has been eating well, so it doesn't
sound like she is having any liver trouble right now.
A lot of them have recessive genetics for yellow pigmentation in the mouths. It is a gene primarily
from the P. Barbata, mostly for defensive protection in the wild.
