Thank you for the query.

I would like to know few more things which would help me in suggesting you better:

1.) Do you have pain abdomen?
2.) What is your height and weight?

Both your Liver enzymes are elevated and it could be due to Testosterone Injections.

Kindly do not stop taking the injections on your own. If you are taking Doctor first.

For Panic attacks, you will need a Physical and Psychological evaluation, Lab tests like,

1.) Complete Blood Count
2.) Thyroid test
3.) ECG

and if confirmed, the treatment will depend upon the cause. Kindly get a Psychiatric Opinion, so that necessary interventions could be done.

Kindly visit a Gastoenterologist, so that he/she may examine you and if necessary run further tests to rule out any abnormality.

Follow these lifestyle modifications:

1.) Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.
2.) Avoid stress, practice relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation.
3.) Avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine.
4.) Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables.
5.) Sleep for a minimum of 8 hours daily.
6.) Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight.

Hope I have answered your Query, I will be available to answer your follow up Queries.

Dr. Mohammed Tauseef.
