Thanks for your response.

And to inform you, i had never diagnosed with any liver or kidney issues previously. I am not on any medication.

It is just that I suffer from acidity very frequently and thereby have the feeling of nausea quite often. And some time i suffer from dysentery type of problem (i mean a kind of painful motion).

And as far as the history concerned, it is only typhoid I had last year and a problem of tonsillitis.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks for the reply.

With those test results I don't there is anything seriously abnormal.There is mild alteration in liver function test that is ALT, but this not should be rechecked after interval as other LFTs are normal. In most cases this can be transitory.

Upto 4 /HPF RBCs in urine are normal, so this should not be a concern.Even lipid levels are not in range to cause concern.

So in all, your test results don't suggest any major health issue.

For acidity you can try oral antacids,diet and life style changes.

Hope this answers your questions.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
