Posted on Mon, 24 Jul 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: I recently visited a dermatologist for acne, she was planning to put me on isotretinoin after a LFT and a Lipid Profile. There were a few out of range values in the tests. Wanted your advise on what should be done. I have attached the copies of the reports for your review.
My sugar is normal, BP fluctuates around 130/90, My weight is 93 and Height is 5 foot 8 inches.

Just forgot to add, that I had been diagnosed with grade 1 Non alcoholic fatty liver through an ultrasound some time ago.
