HELLO & WELCOME TO HCM FORUM

ITS VERY ESSENTIAL TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM LIVER DISEASE.

YOU HAVE ELEVATED SGOT & SGPT WHILE SGOT MAY BE ELEVATED IN DISEASE OF OTHER ORGANS, SGPT IS VERY SPECIFIC AND COMES FROM LIVER.

OTHER TEST WHICH IS ALSO SPECIFIC FOR LIVER DISEASE IS GAMMA GGT, YOU SHOULD GO FOR THIS TEST.

CAUSE OF ELEVATED SGOT/ SGPT SHOULD BE FIND AS YOU MAY ASYMPTOMATIC PRESENTLY AND MAY FACE SEVERE LIVER COMPROMISE IN THE COMING DAYS.

SGOT/ SGPT MAY BE ELEVATED IN VARYING GRADE:MAY BE IN HUNDREDS/MAY BE IN THOUSANDS WHICH YOU HAVE NOT MENTIONED.

MILD RISE IS SEEN IN ALCOHOLIC LIVER DISEASE, RESOLVING AND PROGREESIVE VIRAL HEPATITIS, MALARIAL HEPATITIS, GALL STONES, ACUTE PANCREATITIS, COMMON BILE DUCT STONE,FATTY LIVER, CIRRHOSIS, ETC.

REGARDING MEDICINE URSODEOXYCHOLIC ACID 15MG/KG MAY BE HELPFUL FOR YOU. OTHER MEDICINE DOCUMENTED HELPFUL IN LIVER DISEASE ARE SILYMARIN, METADOXINE, L-ORNITHINE L-ASPARTATE.

DIET :
1) YOU CAN TAKE EACH & EVERY THING. YOU DONT HAVE TO TAKE ANY PRECAUTION.

2) YOU CAN TAKE TURMERIC (HALDI) ALSO. ALTHOUGH YOU AND MY OTHER DOCTORS ARE NOT SATISFIED BY MY THIS STATEMENT BUT LISTEN TURMERIC IS NOT CONCERNED WITH THE COLOUR OF BODY IN JAUNDICE.
3) FEW MISCONCEPTION ARE IN OUR SOCIETY: DONT WEAR YELLOW CLOTHS, DONT TAKE TURMERIC, DONT TAKE OIL ND GHEE

4) WEAKNESS DURING JAUNDICE AND AFTER DISEASE DEPENDS ON THE DIET DURING YOUR ILLNESS AND IF YOU TAKE RESTRICTED DIET THEN YOU HAVE TO FACE WEAKNESS DURING RECOVERY PERIOD.

5) REGARDING TURMERIC YOU CAN UNDERSTAND BY THIS EXAMPLE: IF WE TAKE TOMATO,CHILLY, ONION AND WE DONT BECOME RED, GREEN AND VIOLET THEN HOW OUR COLOUR WLL CHAGE AFTER TAKING TURMERIC

6) SO BETTER TO TAKE FULL DIET WITH TURMERIC, OIL & GHEE

NO WHERE HAS BEEN DOCUMENTED REGARDING LIMITATION IN DIET

MISCONCEPTION IS ALSO ADOPTED BY INDIAN PUBLIC AND DOCTORS VERY EASILY AND THIS IS QUITE WRONG

TAKE CARE
