Brief Answer:
Clarifications please

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for your query.
I'm Dr. Shuba Hariprasad and will be answering your query today.
Would you clarify a few things for me, please?

*what is his height and weight?
*does he smoke or consume alcohol? How much & how frequently?
*did he have any recent infection or illness?
*does he travel or have a lot of stress?
*any family history of liver disease, high cholesterol, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes or stroke?
*does he have a sedentary lifestyle?
*does he exercise?
*does he have any symptoms like breathing difficulty, fatigue, tiredness?
*does he snore?

I've gone through his reports.
His cholesterol is on the higher side with abnormal liver function tests. I would like to check for fatty liver disease.
Has an ultrasound been done?

Please get back to me with the above requested clarifications so that I can recommend and appropriate course of action.

Warm regards and best of health.
Dr. Shuba Hariprasad
