Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

The above Liver function test shows that, there is damage to the Liver, Hence you must stop drinking alcohol, also the triglycerides level is high, prone to heart diseases , hence you must reduce the intake of oily and fat foods... Mild hepato megaly means enlargement of the size of the Liver and also there is destruction of normal architecture of liver.... so you must quit alcohol to lead a normal life....
