Question: I was hospitalized for 5days, diagnosed & treated for viral pyrexia.
While discharge my Liver Function Test (LFT) parameters were little over the upper limits, which has further shot up per latest LFT results post 5days of discharge (SGPT/ALT & SGOT/AST in specific).
Please review the attached discharge summary & latest LFT report.
Kindly advise what should I do next. Shall I continue the treatment under a pulmonologist or consult any other specialist?

Brief Answer:
Deranged liver enzymes are a part of hepatitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir,
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.
Viral hepatitis means inflammation of cells of liver.Liver is a organ made up of a number of cells.Each cell stores these enzymes inside them namely sgot sgpt etc.However when a patient has got hepatitis it causes inflammation of these cells leading to leakage of these enzymes into blood.
As per the reports i don't think you need to worry at all.Its a part of hepatitis and only when these enzymes are three times the upper normal value it is concerning clinically.

As of now i would suggest him to take treatment under a Gastroenterologist.

Viral serology test should be done.
Milk of thistle should be given twice daily .Its hepato protective.
Tablet Liv 52 should be given twice daily to patient.
Take a high carbohydrate and low fat diet.
Repeat the test after 2 weeks.
