Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

I went through your test reports.
The bilirubin level is not significantly high. Moreover the liver enzymes ( AST/ALT/ALP) are all within normal limits. So there is no need to worry.
Sometimes this occurs due to a harmless condition called XXXXXXX Syndrome.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
Since Vitamin D level is low, you need to take Vitamin D supplements.
For high homocysteine, try to avoid smoking/alcohol ( if you have those habits) and eat green leafy vegetables and take vitamin B supplements (including folic acid).
For high uric acid levels, try to avoid alcohol and red meat and repeat the test after 4 weeks.

I hope that answers your question.
