Mild hepatomegaly. ALT, ALP, GGTP high. Levels not reduced after dieting. Medications not helping. Continue dieting?

My wife is having mild hepatomegaly since 3 months. ALT 39, GGTP 69 ALP 80. After 1 month of dieting and exercise, these levels became ALT 21, GGTP 68 ALP 79. Then We met a gastro enterologist. as the GGTP level was still not below the limits. he has given tablets : UDLIV , lasma lc for 30 days. she had some eosonophils 12, and some allergy . so the doc would have given lasma lc. i now find after 1 month of medicines the following levels ALT 31, GGTP 104 ALP 86. we have stopped taking all medicines, as I suspect the tablets would have further raised the GGTP levels. She is continuing with changed diet and regular walking. Is this correct?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

She may need further investigations - viral studies, Lipid profile and so on.
The enzymes fluctuate day to day / even during the day.
Insult to the liver should be considered - say drugs like paracetamol.
You should follow up with Hepatologist (Gastro-enterologist) - seek a second opinion if need be.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
