Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

I have gone through all your reports.

Mild hepatomegaly can be effectively treated with regular physical exercise and good diet.

Have oatmeal for breakfast and dinner for 90 days.

Completely stop smoking and alcohol if any.

Consume fruits like apple and pomegranate every day.These have liver protecting properties.

Completely cut down fat and fried foods.

Repeat LFT after 3 months.

At the moment you do not need additional drugs except those prescribed by your doctor.

Thanks for the reply doc! I appreciate that! However, I have a few queries like:

Can I eat milk and milk based products?

Can I eat biscuits and baked chips?

I work in a BPO, so is there a chance that working at night would worsen my condition?
