Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I have read your query in detail. I understand your concern.

If you stop consuming alcohol and cocaine, this level would go down with in 2-3 weeks.

But if continue that, it would keep on increasing.

Also, i would advise you to get a Endoscopy and Ultrasound of liver.

This is my best advice for you with the available details, if you have any further query, please ask us.
Stay Healthy
