Hello,

You are having high GGT level of 214, ALT is 87 (on the higher side), AST is 49 (higher). You are experiencing bloating, palpitations and discomfort. You are suggested to withdraw from alcohol, you can join a detox center. To reduce GGT levels, take proteins, egg, nuts, legumes, etc. Taking fruits rich in fiber, vitamin C, folate and beta-carotene help to reduce GGT levels. Take lettuce, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, apricots, pumpkin and apricots, etc.

If obese reduce weight, do regular exercises. Avoid sedentary life. Do not take trans fat, full fat dairy products, spicy food, hot food, red meat, carbs, sugars, refined flour, etc. Take lean meat, small fishes, well cooked whole cereals, fruits, berries, veggies. Prefer to take boiled food over fried food.

Take food cooked only in olive oil, Stay away from addictions if any. After 45-50 days repeat liver function tests and other tests also. It should improve. But continue with your healthy diet lifestyle. You can take liver tonics. Get clinically examined after a month or two, if needed get liver biopsy done to stay on the safer side.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
