Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist

Since you have stopped taking alcohol since last 1 year. i will like to advise you to get liver function tests (SGOT/SGPT, S.ALBUMIN, PT/INR, AND SERUM BILIRUBIN), blood sugar and lipid profile along with ultrasound abdomen mentioning liver size and echotexture, spleen size, portal vein diameter, any ascites

Please get these tests done upload the reports before any advise. Also mention your body mass index. Please remain in touch. Waiting for the feedback
