Hello, chopramukesh14,
If your blood urea and creatinine levels are a little low , that is good.
You don't want hem to be high which would indicate kidney damage.
I am glad that you are being treated for elevated cholesterol. Most
of the time this may be associated with overweight problem and also
diabetes. Make sure you are checked for this through two hour post meal
blood sugar level and also HbA1C levels which indicate how your sugar has
been in the last three months or longer.
Swelling of the feet and toes is indicative of some fluid retention. Make sure
that you cut back on your salt intake and you can use salt substitutes that
are available or low sodium variety.
I want you to get a repeat sonogram of the liver and get all the liver enzyme
tests to see if there are any signs of cirrhosis beginning. It is very important
to rule this out. If there is any question , the doctor might decide to do a liver
biopsy to correctly assess the level of inflammation or scarring.
I also hope that you are on Vitamin-E 800 i.u. daily along with a B-Complex Vitamin.
You should be on a low fat diet.
Hope this gives you some information that you can discuss with your doctor.
I wish you the very best.
