Hi Doctor,

I have uploaded the report. I consume alcohol almost everyday and wanted to check how the liver is functioning. No symptoms.

Please go through the report once and let me know how it looks.

Thank you.

Probable alcoholic liver disease

Hi,
Your liver enzymes are increased.
This could be probably be due to alcoholic liver disease.
You need to quit drinking alcohol.
Also get tested for Hepatitis B and C infection.

Get an ultrasound scan of the abdomen done to assess the status of liver and to rule out chronic liver disease.
