Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!

Good to learn that you are trying to better your health.
Your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are high. But your liver enzymes are near normal . (only ALT is minimally elevated).
There is no immediate need for a liver biopsy.

You can try low fat diet, regular exercise, meticulous medication for other diseases that you have.
Avoid junky, oily, fatty foods. Use cardio-friendly cooking oils.

Regularly check your lipid levels to see if improvement is maintained. Lipid lowering agents like statins can be taken with your doctor’s guidance.

This should help to reduce lipid levels and hence NASH.

It helps us to improve continuously if you could please write a rating review before you ‘accept’ and ‘close’ the query.
Thank you!!
