Hi,

Well your LFT is altered. Your SGPT and SGOT is elevated. Based on this I would say your liver is weak. If you are taking alcohol you need to avoid it. You need to avoid drugs which can cause liver damage. Apart from this good diet and medications would also help. In brief to answer your question your liver is not strong based on these reports.

Hope this helps

Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
Are you an alcoholic person?
Are you suffering from recurrent jaundice since childhood?
Do you have family history of jaundice/ liver cancer/ cirrhosis?
What was the cause of jaundice 6 years back?
Have you undergone ultrasound imaging ? What was the reports?
You should consult with physician/ gastro-physician and should go for detail analysis for the cause of recurrent jaundice.
Regarding diet, you should take absolutely normal diet.
Previously, turmeric, fatty and protein diet is contraindicated and sweet & sugar diet is preferable.
But now, as such there is no need of dietary restrictions.
It has been observed that dietary restriction is the main cause of weight loss and malaise persisting for many years after any post icterus period.
You should take normal diet for maintaining your weight and physique.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
