Brief Answer:
ursocol is better

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The fact remains that ursocol is a better drug than liv 52.
I suggest you take the tablet, and once you get better, continue live 52.
I also suggest taking medicine for cholesterol levels. Best medicine for that is risuvastatin 5 mg once at bed time.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal

Brief Answer:
Medicines, diet and exercise regime will help

Detailed Answer:
Ursocol has been tried in trials. Therefore it is better. There have been no trials with LIV 52 and the exact efficacy (if at all) is not known.
As for the serious condition, I feel that it should be ok if you manage the tablets and diet modifications along with exercise regime.
As for diet, I suggest DASH diet. You can refer to my article on the same available free on our website-
