Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Liver functions get deranged by the unhealthy life style,poor eating habits and excessive consumption of alcohol.
Once you quit alcohol and adopt a healthy living,these raised liver enzymes come back to normal within 4-6 weeks time.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
