Hello

Thank you so much for getting back to me. I have gone through the attached reports. Here are my interpretations

1. active live inflammation as settled down however bilirubin is still raised. Can you please let me know what the previous bilirubin was ?
2. serum albumin is almost normal. I recommend some protein supplements in the form of chicken, fish, sprouts or protein shakes
3. her complete blood count is normal . Active tubercular infection too has settled down. please continue taking anti tubercular treatment

Please get back to me with the previous liver function and complete blood count reports. I am happy that there are signs is recovery

Hello

Thanks for getting back

I found the previous reports. Liver function is returning to nornal. Liver enzymes are normal as well. I recommend that one essential anti tubercular drug called rifampicin to be re started as soon as possible after consulting with your treating physician, it will ensure faster recovery from tuberculosis and also prevent recurrence

I hope I was of help, please also make sure to follow my general instructions given in my previous post. Diet is the most important thing right now for a patient with liver dysfunction
