Thanks for the query

I understand your concern. Your doctors have been treating you appropriately for your condition but I think you need to be learn about your condition

1. Alcoholic fatty liver disease is a chronic disease and it will only resolve to normal in due course of time, you are receiving the right drugs and medications for the same here is what you should do to help your liver heal faster

i) Abstain from alcohol
ii) exercise daily for 45 min every day in the form of brisk walking,swimming,cycling,etv
iii) avoid high fat diet
iv) The SGOT/SGPT will return to normal only after several months of treatment, diet and exercise

2. You are definitely hyperthyroid and you have been put on the right anti hyperthyroid drug. Methimazole. Please continue taking these drugs. Also approach your endocrinologist and ask for options of radio ablation. You should know that you might face the following issues due to hyperthyroidism

i) Palpitation of heart (for which you have been given beta blockers
ii) Excessive sweating, anxiety, loose stools
iii) Sleep disturbances and nightmares
iv) Increased hunger and weight loss
v) Eye changes like dryness of eyes and staring look

These symptoms will regress once your thyroid level goes back to near normal range, again it will take upto 12 weeks of treatment for the thyroid hormones to come back to normal. Please continue the treatment without fail. Dose regulation becomes difficult if you are irregular with the medications

I hope I have answered your query, if you have any further queries I will be happy to answer

I wish you good health and a speedy recovery
