Elevated ALT and SLT. Liver biopsy report showing hyperechoic to the right renal, right renal reveals echogenic foci. What does it mean?

I ve had five years of high alt/slt s. GGT was over 200 (exactly what is GGT?). I went to rehab (wine drinker, but couldn t slack off even after my own doc told me I must after seeing the results of my liver biopsy - just infiltration), So while in Ca in rehab, I had an ultrasound. Met the doctor after that and he just said, just stop drinking and you ll be okay. The results were: Liver appears hyperechoic to the right renal . Right renal appears to reveal two echogenic foci. I ve relapsed, and drinking my chard again. I need to make an appt w my internal doc & gastroenterologist again, I know. But when I saw my IM doc after coming home from rehab (70 days), he just said it s probably kidney stones . I dunno. Just worry about that with my history and I m trying to understand the ultrasound results....

you have probably kidney stones but no size mentioned usually you don't need to get treated unless he stones come down unless the stone is very need to stop drinking as high ggt means your liver is damaged. see a urologist for your kidney stones keep yourself well hydrated
