Dear Friend.
Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Hepatitis A can cause serious rise in liver enzymes.
We advise admission at this level due to risk of hypoglycemia, bleeding and encephalopathy.
I would advise you to get a PT/INR done and also make sure you don't get constipated. In case admission is not possible do take a lot of glucose orally.
Also, you may take Syp Lactulose 30 ml Twice a dayy, so that you pass 2-3 loose stools per day to prevent encephalopathy.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
