Brief Answer:
Additional information is required

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

I can certainly understand your concern.

I have worked through your attached reports in detail.

Your reports show mild elevation of liver enzymes.

Certainly milk thistle and Liv 52 will help to normalise these parameters.

Before guiding you further, with regards to elevation of your liver enzymes I would like to know the following

1. Are you consuming alcohol ? If yes since how long and when was the last drink taken ?

2. Are you normal weight/overweight/ obese ?

3. Since how long are you receiving Rosuvastatin( Rosuvastatin F) and Nebistar ?

4. When was the last lipid profile ( blood cholesterol levels) tested ?

5. Did you take up Ultrasound abdomen test in the recent past ?

6. Is there any associated fever, pain abdomen or yellowish discoloration of urine or skin or eyes?

7. Have you consumed any outside food stuff before the development of liver enzymes abnormalities ?

8. Did you screen yourself for viral Hepatitis ?

Once I receive your answers I will guide you through.

Thank you

Brief Answer:
Weight reduction and avoidance of alcohol is strongly recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

You have attached liver function tests, but not the lipid profile.

The liver abnormalities in your case are related to overweight and alcohol intake. It's high time to quit alcohol and go for weight reduction.

Likewise it's advisable to consider an ultrasound abdomen at the earliest to determine liver pathology in view of alcohol intake and overweight.

It's not safe to take Rosuvastatin without lipid profile guidance.

It's also the high time to quit eating outside food stuff.

Review with reports to determine further course of action.

Are you satisfied with my consultation? Is there anything else left to be discussed ?

Post your further queries if any
Thank you.

I generally prescribe Tab Liveril forte 1 pill once a day after breakfast for 2 weeks for my patients with such lab abnormalities.
