Thanks for the precise information

I would suggest you avoid oily meals, fried foods and spicy/fermented meals

Get a liver function test done after 2 weeks, if yet the bilirubin remains high you should see a gastroentrologist

Continue Sompraz and dipep both twice a day before breakfast and before dinner

Stop Orni-O after seven days and take it after breakfast and after dinner

Avoid alcohol strictly

Hope this helps
