Not required

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

Your liver function is absolutely fine except for the insignificantly raised bilirubin.
There is no need to take milk thistle. There is also no harm taking that.

Thanks a lot Sir.

My schoolmate friend who is a orthopedic surgeon has given his inputs on taking milk thistle supplement or Liv 52 capsules.

Hence wanted to take an expert opinion before taking any of these sir.

Also taking these ayurvedic supplements along with my regular medications like Betacap and xyzal will it cause any side effects.

Kindly advise.

Thanks, XXXXXXX
