Suggest remedy for high Gamma GT level and ALT level

hello, Hello, I had a full medical yesterday and the only big concerns I had was down to my liver. My Gamma GT level was 540, I was told by the doc, this should be no more than 80. Also my ALT was at 100 where it should be 50 and ALP was only slightly over. I am concerned on what this means. The last alcoholic drink I had was 2 days ago (Friday and Saturday), it was a family celebration over the weekend and I would say a lot of alcohol was consumed but not enough that I didn’t know what I was doing. Can you help

Hello

Increased GGT is specific for alcoholic liver injury.ALT level is also increased.

You need further investigations like viral markers,complete liver function test,lipid profile,random blood sugar,ultrasound of abdomen.

In such conditions,I suggest tablet ursodeoxycholic acid 300 mg twice daily for three months to my patients. It helps in regeneration of liver cells.

Avoid alcohol completely.This is very important for your health.
You should also avoid red meat and high fat milk products.
You should avoid fried and junk food.
You should also increase your physical activity.

You may need to take few more medicines after evaluation.

Take Care
