hi there,in your LFT tests the bilirubin levels are high and your enzymes are also in borderline high limit except alkaline phosphatase which is high.These suggest mild liver function derangement and it could be brought on by the alcohol intake or due to any inflammatory process going in the liver. Your thyroid function tests are within nornal limits kindly correlate with the lab reference range for confirmation,. so for that you do not need any medication. You need to consult a physician regarding your LFT and get more ancillary tests done if needed. For the time being you could cut down on the vodka intake and take on to exercise and a healthy balanced diet. Repeat your LFT after 15 days and see the progress. Take care.
