Hello, pawankr0022,
I understan that you are recovering from Chicken pox which is
obviuosly a viral infection. Any type of viral infection can affect
the liver, for example the Mononucleosus virus or any Hepatitis
viruses such as Type- A, B,C,D or E.
Your report of mild liver enlargement and abnormal liver enzymes
may be explained by Grade II fatty liver, although I think the viral
infection is aggravating the liver enzyme elevation.
If you are over weight and have high lipid levels, like cholesterol
and triglycerides and have a border line blood sugar, you may fit
the definition for "Metabolic Syndrome".
Fatty liver is seen during pergnancy, caused by some drugs such
as NSAIDS, sulfa drugs and tetracycline family of drugs as well.
Some unusual conditions like amyloidosis can cause fatty liver.
What I suggest is that you get your liver blood tests re-checked
in about 6-8 weeks and see how much they come down. In the
mean time, avoid excess fatty or greasy foods. Good protein
supplement is helpful. I would also recommend a Super B-Complex
vitamin along with 1000 mg. of Vit-C daily. For fatty liver, Vit-E
800 i.u. daily is also helpful. Losing weight and regular excercises
are good for you. Good news is, at this stage Fatty liver is reversible
and it can be normal, if you take care. Stay away from alcohol also.
I wish you well.
