Diagnosis of acute hepatitis.

I am 33 years old. I have been diagnosed with thickened gall bladder wall with collapsed lumen peri-portal cuffing. What is it and how serious is it? I have also been detected with jaundice. My haematology report is Hb-11.7, ESR-15 and liver function test report is bilirubin total-5.2, bilirubin direct-2.9, total proteins-6.6, albumin-2.4, SGOT-1350, SGPT-1280, and alkaline phosphatase-332. Am I suffering from some serious ailment?

Your liver tests show that you have acute hepatitis. You need to get more tests done to find out the cause of your hepatitis. In general, acute hepatitis is self-limiting and most people recover but whether you need any treatment in the future will depend on the results of your tests. Therefore, you should consult a gastroenterologist for proper management.
