I have gone through all your blood reports,i.e.LFT and Lipid profile.
In Liver function tests,all are elevated except Serum Albumin and Serum A/G ratio.
You are having Alchohol liver disease.
In Lipid profile,all the values are elevated.
There is chance of getting complications like Ischaemic heart disease due to high Triglycerides and high LDL.
Alcohol may also increase these levels.
Please stop Alcohol completely. You may want to take professional help in quitting.
Nothing to worry. Everything will be alright within a year once you quit.
Please consult your Physician and get appropriate drugs.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery.
