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

Your SGPT is mildly increased, but not significantly raised.
One of the possibilities is fatty liver disease.
You can get an ultrasound scan of the abdomen done to rule out fatty liver.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
Your ALP is not abnormal.
All you need to do is quit drinking alcohol.
Your uric acid level is high. Some of the causes of high uric acid are high alcohol intake, diet XXXXXXX is red meat and certain diseases including malignancy.
Quit drinking alcohol and check your uric acid level again after 4 weeks.


I hope that answers your question.
