Have gone through your reports and they look perfectly normal. Only disease you seem to be carrying is diabetes which you said is well controlled on Glyciphage. I don't see a reason why you should be on any other medication other than that..

Zevit is multivitamin and Zinc, you can take thaat for general well being but as such not indicated in your case..
Udiliv is for draining excess bile out of liver which in your case not indicated.
Check with your doctor the reason for prescribing these, he might be having some reason which your reports do not suggest.
Feel free to ask any more question.. Take care

Dr. has suggested me Udiliv as my liver USG is giving coarse ecotexture---may be fatty liver--
Answered by Dr. Rajat Gupta 6 hours later

For fatty liver, I would recommend you to take fat free diet. This would amount to restricting oil, ghee, excessive sugar and red meat from your diet. Don't worry you and your liver is absolutely fine. Avoiding fat and taking your antidiabetic drugs is enough for you.
Do ask if you have some more queries.
Take care.
