Brief Answer:
Further information needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The first thing I would need to ask is for the reason that made you seek medical attention or to get the tests done. The next thing to ask is whether you are an alcoholic and whether you have any specific symptoms. The third thing to ask is whether you are a diabetic and whether you are on any medication.

The reports is more or less ok but could be on the higher end due to effect of alcohol. I would be able to comment further after hearing your inputs in relation to the questions I have asked.

I will wait for your response. Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
You need to refrain from alcohol.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the update. You need to refrain from alcohol intake and that itself is the treatment you require. No medicine is needed. Limarin (Silymarin) is often given in such cases but you cannot expect any convincing benefits from it.

Let me know if I could help further.
