Does My Blood Test Result Indicate Diabetes?

I just had a routine blood test with the following results: ALT 85 CHOL 206 HDL 28 TRIG 518 Glucose Level 115 All other tests on liver panel and rest of the batter were within normal parameters. Is this type 2 diabetes? I am obviously concerned about the liver. How do I intepret these results?

Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Increased SGPT indicates liver injury.It is most likely due to increased triglyceride level.
It is important to know bilirubin level,GGT level and viral markers.Ultrasound of abdomen should also be done.
You should take tablet Ursodeoxycholic acid 300 mg twice daily for three months.It will help in regeneration of liver cells.

Your triglyceride level is also very much increased.
You should take tablet Fenofibtrate 160 mg once daily at night after dinner.
You should reduce your weight if you are overweight.
You should avoid red meat and high fat milk products.
Cook food in olive or canola oil.
You should take limited salt in your diet.
You should avoid alcohol and cigarettes if you take these things
Take lot of fruits and vegetables.You should also increase your physical activity in the form of walking and exercise.
