Need medication for jaundice

Hi Dr. I was detected with slight jaundice my stats being bilirubin as 1.6 (std 0-1) and SGPT 138 (std 0-40). I took LIV52 as suggested by my Dr. After three months when I tested my bilirubin level where normal but I still had slight rise level of SGPT- 90 (0-40). Is this concerning? Please note that: I don t have fever nor vomiting or nausea but still my urine is sometime slight yellowish

I read your question carefully and can understand your concern very well.

I would like to tell you that it takes few months for levels of SGPT to come down to normal after having viral hepatitis, which is exactly in your case.

If you have no associated symptoms and your bilirubin level is normal, then no need to take any kind of medications at this point of time. Just give some time and your SGPT will definitely come down to below 50. If it continues to remain on higher side even after 6 months, then you need to go for ultrasound to rule out other liver pathology like fatty liver.

Hope this will help you and feel free to ask your further queries.
