Hello Ravi and welcome to HCM
Your reports says that your Liver mechanism is little disturbed may be due to alcohol. Your T. Bilirubin, SGOT and SGPT are raised. In addition to these your Lipid profile is good but we don't know about the good cholesterol value (HDL)?
In my opinion as your T. Bil. OT and PT are slightly raised so it can came to its normal value by some precautions only:
1. Avoid Alcohol (you have already done it)
2. Reduce or stop oily and junk food
3. do regular exercise
4. Take some liver tonic as per your doctor advice
But if your value came to normal than also you have to follow these precautions regularly otherwise it will increase again. Keep a check on your LFT and do USG abdomen for liver.
Best Wishes
