Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem the rise in SGOT , SGPT is due to obesity which results in a condition known as XXXXXXX - Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis which is liver inflammation caused by a buildup of fat in the liver . An abdominal ultrasound will be the first test which I will recommend you to get done to confirm the diagnosis . You need to see a gastroenterologist for the same . After confirmation of diagnosis treatemnt can be suggested . There is no treatment for XXXXXXX . Reduce your total cholesterol level and control obesity . Take care. Dr. Shruti

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for reverting back . In overweight people it is not essential that all the components of lipid profile will be deranged . You are having hypertryglyceridemia and in your case the cause is obesity . Triglycerides are a type of fat the body uses to store energy and give energy to muscles. So in many pateints that is the first component to be raised as it increases with the body fat .Next Is VLDL which is A high VLDL cholesterol level can cause the buildup of cholesterol in your arteries and increases your risk of heart disease and stroke but in your case it is almost borderline . If it is not controlled at this stage then it may affect other components also . Reducing weight , cutting on fats and sugars with alcohol or caffeine containing bevrages will be helpful .Regular aerobic exercise for half an hour at least 5 days a week will do the trick. IF not controlled by life style modidfications medicines are used to treat it . Dr. Shruti
