Your high levels of liver enzymes and high uric acid can be explained by your regular intake of alcohol and caffeine.
High levels of phosphorus can be due to low calcium,thyroid or parathyroid issues.However chances are that you may be having low calcium because of regular intake of alcohol.
I advise you to totally stop alcohol and limit your tea to just two cups a day.
Take fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables.
Cut down your butter and cheese as they contain more of saturated fats.
Start doing regular exercises.
There is no role of ursodol in present may stop it.
Rather there is no role of any medicine now.You simply require lifestyle changes.
Do it regularly for 6 weeks and get your tests repeated.
I hope you should be improved substantially.
Failure in improvement may require a consultation with Gastroenterologist.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck.
