User rating for this question
I have undergone some physical test lately which show mild abnormality in the LFT section. The readings are as under: Serum Bili. Direct - 0.7 - Normal (0.2-1.2) Serum Bili. Indirect - 1.2 - Normal (0.2-1.2) SGPT - 90 - Normal (upto 37 IU/L) SGOT - 52 - Normal (upto 40 IU/L) Rest all the readings are in normal range. I had undergone LFT several times in last one year but these readings are never normal. Their is always slight abnormality in the readings above. I had done a course of liv 52 of Himalaya for more than a month, but with no effects. I have also done a course of Udiliv 300 for about a month, but they never came under normal range. My diet does not consist of high consumption of oil. My triglycerides level is also high. (264 - Normal (40-160 mg/dl)) Cholestrol (both HDL and LDL) are in normal range. Also am over weight - 170 cm height 98 kg weight. Please suggest how to proceed with this.
