Thank you for submitting your query.

I would like to know why do you take Advil frequently?? Your reports suggest you are having altered Liver Function Test. Advil is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which has adverse effects on liver if taken habitually. I suggest you to stop abusing it and if you can take a professional help.

One more thing I would recommend you to get a ultrasound scan of liver done after discussing it with your doctor to exclude liver enlargement that is Hepatomegaly. If it is confirmed, you may be having Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease which has raised you liver enzymes. There is nothing to panic about as it is common with advancing age. You need to cut down your fat intake and increase physical activity, drink alcohol in moderation and quit smoking if you do.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you Good Health.
