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

You are having chronic hepatitis B and dyslipidemia and for which you require few investigations and then treatment
1.Blood tests- HBVDNA (quantitative), Anti HBe antibody, Anti HCV antibody
2. Upload report of fibroscan, see for the degree of fibrosis
3. If you are overweight then do regular exercise, take low fat and low caloric diet to reduce your weight
4. Check your blood pressure and blood sugars levels, if deranged then they should be treated accordingly
5.Avoid alcohol if you do take
6. If there is significant fibrosis you also need to get endoscopy examination to see for any varix

SGPT will be normalised once the cause of it's elevation is treated which is chronic hepatitis B

So get these tests and evaluation and upload these reports or discuss with your treating doctor

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
