1. what does the ultrasound of abdomen say
2. Please give the complete Liver function test- bilirubin, ALT, AST, ALP - this would be mentioned in your report - if not please get a complete LFT done.
URSOCOL has no role in reducing liver enzymes and bilirubin levels.
It is your habit of aloholism which is the root cause of your problems.
Earlier decline in liver enzymes were not because of consumption of URSOCOL ,it was because you abstained fom alcohol.
