very mild hepatitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Your liver enzymes are slightly raised, suggesting mild hepatitis.

This could be as a side effect of Dapsone you are taking.

Inform your physician about this on your next visit to him.

This levels are only slightly raised, and not a cause of worry but needs regular monitoring till you are on dapsone. No need to discontinue that at present. Discuss with your physician before making any changes to his prescription.

Hope I have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr.Deepika Patil
