How can elevated liver enzymes be treated?

Hi there, six week ago I went to the hospital after 1 week drinking binge. I have anxiety so my health really concerns me. The doctors at the hospital stated that my liver enzymes increased, but will go down with not drinking alcohol. I read a bunch of online stuff that made me fear I have liver damage. The doctors at the hospital just said I have heightened Liver enzymes. However they did not do any further testing or recommend I take any additional testing. They also gave extra strength tylenol. Since they didn t order any more test, didn t comment on my enzymes, does that mean I should worry so much? I am starting to get a panic attack thinking about this.

Hi welcome to the health care magic

Alcohol can drinking can lead fatty liver like simple condition as well and that can lead elevated liver enzymes..

So after stopping of alcohol repeat sgpt, sgot investigation after few days

Additionally get investigated with USG abdomen and attach that report

Don't be panic, check your USG report.

Eat healthy diet and more fruits

Take care

Hope this will help you
