Thanks for the query.

1. If you have no abdominal pain with fever, then the likely cause of liver function test abnormality is systemic infection like malaria, typhoid, dengue or even common viral fever.

2. If you have abdominal pain associated then rare liver infections like liver abscess, rarely gall stones (cholecystitis) or bile duct stones need to be ruled out.

Discuss with your current doctor about the aforementioned possibilities. Most likely you will need further test to narrow down the cause. Treatment can be planned accordingly.

Hope this answers your query. Please do reply in case of any further questions.

Wish you a speedy recovery...

kindly advice regarding food intake
Answered by Dr. Abhijit Deshmukh 5 hours later

If the bilirubin levels are normal and you do not have symptoms suggestive of jaundice, there is no strict food restriction. But ensure it is hygienic, healthy and drink clean potable water as any super added infection which is food or waterborne (like viral hepatitis) can cause additional trouble to liver.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Wish you a speedy recovery...

My wife was admitted in a hospital for 10 days due to acute Viral hepatitis A. She is diabetic since last 4-5 years.

When discharged from the hospital on 5th February, her Total Bilirubin levels were 1.3 and SGPT(ALT) of 350. She continued having B. Complex tablets as per doctors recommendations. The test for SGPT(ALT) has been done after every 10 days since her discharge from hospital and it showed an increasing trend of 371, 395, 650 and two days back it was 795. Her bilirubin level is now at 0.8.

What could be the reason for SGPT levels increasing and bilirubin reducing??? Any suggestions on what should be done next?...Thanks in advance... Dinesh
