Enzyme within normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

5 he quantity of alcohol consumed by you is unlikely to result in alcoholic liver disease .
Compared to previous values there is only marginal elevation of SGPT and SGOT (non specific liver enzymes ) but they are still in normal range . Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is more specific enzyme marker for alcoholic liver disease.

Even though quantity of alcohol consumed by you is not high, complete abstinence is key to good health

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care

Best regards

Hi Doctor Shoba,
I don't hardly drink when you compare to what I drink before the previous test and still the result is the normal region when you compare to the recent one-
Should I go for a cancer test-
With regards to Alcohol I have no problem to quit because I hardly drink-

also I would like to inform that 12 hrs before the test I had 3 pegs of whisky which is the only alcohol I consumed since last 10 days-

Do you think I should do the test again-

Please advice
