Brief Answer:
follow the advises.. maintain a healthy lifestyle..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back to HealthcareMagic,

I've gone through both of your reports..

Your wife's CBC is indicative of borderline low hemoglobin with nutritional deficiency, which needs further thorough work up in the first place.. she needs to be physically examined by an Internal Medicine specialist in the first place along with few other detailed investigations (eg. Peripheral blood smear, LFT, KFT, Iron profile with reticulocyte counts,Vit-B12 and folic acid levels )..

Now coming to your query, there's a mild elevation of the bilirubin levels and GGT and Alkaline phosphatase (the SGPT level is not elevated enough to be considered relevant).. all of which can be secondary to the alcohol consumption..

I can see that you've already been diagnosed with fatty liver in the past, so this is extremely important for you to COMPLETELY STOP those drinks at the earliest, that is the only way to completely heal and recover..

Also it'll be worthwhile to consider getting another Repeat USG of whole abdomen along with a fibro-scan of liver done to check the present status..along with this you need to get few more blood investigations done (eg. complete hemogram with peripheral blood smear, ESR, serum Amylase & Lipase, serum Calcium and Vit-D3 levels, FBS, PPBS and HbA1C, urea and Creatinine)..all these are necessary to analyse the complete present scenario..

I'd request you to consult a Gastroenterologist along with these, and to be under continuous follow-up of him/her as clinical examination is extremely important to keep a check on your progress and future well being too..

As such, there's no urgent need for these, so you can plan accordingly as these are going to yield future benefits and well being..

It's good that pain is settled for now.. No specific medication is needed until complete evaluation..if there's any acidity/burning stomach problems, please take a PPI/antacid combination eg. Pantoprazole 40mg once daily in the morning 10-15 min before breakfast..

Eat healthy, no outside/junk foods strictly, avoid red meat if you're a non-vegetarian.. drink a lot of water through out the day.. have plenty of fresh fruits and try to replace your regular wheat/flour containing foods to whole wheat/multigrain foods..


I've tried to make it as simple as possible for you to understand, feel free to get back to me in case of any further doubts.. [please also note in future, try to put down one query related to one person at a time, it's always better to put two different queries for two separate persons not only to avoid any confusions, but also separate specific advises related to different relevant specialities]


Take care
Kind Regards

Brief Answer:
Follow the Advises Completely as already explained in details..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back,

As of now, as per this report, there's a mild derangement of the liver function, however complete physical examination should be done under a Gastroenterologist to get a complete idea about it (as liver dysfunction can result in multiple associated systemic disorders, which can only be ascertained after a thorough clinical examination and investigations as already mentioned earlier)..

Don't just get the ultrasound done, please get along with the thorough plan of investigations and management accordingly under the Gastroenterologist as already explained..

Yes, do keep me updated on the progress in the due course..

Take Care
Kind Regards

hi, what is the normal resting pulse, I am a female, 20 years old, and had a heart test, i was told my left atrium is a little bit large, i m not taking any medication for it, my heart rate rises after eating my breakfast, it s a horrible feeling, i feel energyless and can t do anything, i m wondering can it be an early sign of diabetes? I m medium weight and have ovarian poly cystic syndrome, and fatty liver as a result of that.

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
