Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for using XXXXXXX

1. After going through your report and history,
Your sugar levels are normal.
Kidney function is normal.
Lipid profile: Total cholesterol, Triglycerides are normal, HDL slightly reduced with borderline rise in LDL.
Liver function test: Abnormal in S Alkaline phosphatase and SGOT, SGPT.

2. Jaundice will occur if there is raise in bilirubin levels. It is normal so you don't have jaundice.

3. The abnormal LFT suggest some pathology in the liver. Since there is not much raise in SGOT there the parenchymal cells may no be involved. S Alkaline phosphatase increase in cholangitis or cholestasis or any damage in biliary tract. These may also increase in other organ problem.

4. So I advice you to get one USG abdomen and pelvis and HBsAg and HCV done to know any problem in liver. Now take nutritious food XXXXXXX in carbohydrate, Syp Liv 52 and plenty of fluids(water and fruit juice).
Do regular exercise with adequate calorie intake and limit your alcohol intake upto maximum of 20g. These will help you to get back to normal values.

Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further examination and management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
