Brief Answer:
You need not take Irsocol 300 tablets

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

High level of SGPT detected last year suggests some liver disorder may be infective in nature (Hepatitis) and was being prescribed Ursocol 300 .

Since Ursocol is generally prescribed to lower down the cholesterol in bile nd to prevent formation of stone in gall bladder .You may not need to take it now .

As regards fatty liver take fat free diet rich in proteins and vitamins .

Your HbA1C is normal suggestive of non diabetes .

You may repeat the blood test (Liver Function Tests ) now to be rest assured about status of liver function .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
HbA1C of 6.4 suggest good diabetis control

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up .

You have not mentioned in your earlier query that you are diabetic and taking Onglyza 5 mg .

Recent level of HbA1C (6.4) suggest that your diabetes is well controlled and you need to continue taking onglyza 5 mg .

As regards SGPT level of 56 and GGT 55 are slightly higher than normal range I personally think that you may not take Ursocol 300 as it is mainly prescribed for treatment of Gall Bladder stone and to prevent stone formation in gall bladder .It has no role to play in reducing SGPT levels .

The marginally high SGPT and GGT may represent liver disorder of temporary in nature and could be lowered by dietary measures suggested earlier .

Repeat your LFT after 3 months .

Thanks and Regards.

I do not drink alcohol and am not obeisi but my natural father died young with cirrohsis of the liver. The tumor was killed with an ablation and then chimo beeds in artery by tumor. I take Omeprazole 40 mg ever morning an hour before eating for the naseau which I have experience for years (actually led to the discovery of the tumr). Recently I began juicing for breakfast, and increased my exercise routine to everyother day for at least 30 min of fast walk or jug and li? I eat mostly chicken and fish or shrimp, baked or stir fried. I d like to get off the Omeprazole.
