you are improving subject yourself to clinical examination look for enlarged liver icterus and appetite level they are signs of progress exclude hepatitis b and c since you have to take specific treatment and confirm improvement are you imunised against hepatitis b. otherwise you are improving. have you got nausea and vomiting. take bland diet. less oil and spices keep watch on your improvement. repeat liver function test.
