Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

It is good that your bilirubin count is 1 but whether you can have non veg and se food does not depend on the bilirubin levels.

It depends on the amount of liver enzymes like SGOT, SGPT and your INR (international normalized ratio). Have you got these tests done recently?

The levels of SGOT and SGPT are used to detect inflammation due to injury or damage to the liver from any source. INR measures blood's ability for normal clotting and prevention of bleeding and bruising. The levels of SGOT and SGPT will indicate whether you can have oily foods, non veg or sea food.

Hope this answers your query.

Please do get back with these reports so that I can help you in a better way.

Wishing you good health.

Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing back.

If both SGOT and SGPT are in the normal range then you can start with grilled vegetables. Gradually you can start with sea food and non veg but avoid oily, fried stuff and spicy foods.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
