Histroy of typhoid and jaundice. Slightly high bilirubin levels, SGPT alt on border line. On restricted food diet. Advice

Hello, My husband was diagnosed with Typhoid about 7 months back and within a week of Typhoid, he had Jaundice as well. Typhoid was long gone but his Bilrubin levels are slightly on the higher side - Total 1.2 and Direct 0.2. Aso, SGPT Alt is 40 which is in the border line. Even after no oil, less fat diet for 3 months and lest oil and less fat for the last 4 months the levels are not completely normal. Is there something which we need to do.
Thanks in advance.
