Thanks for writing to us.

Except borderline increase in direct bilirubin,SGPT and GGT rest of the reports are normal.

These borderline increase in GGT,SGPT cold be due to :
-fatty liver,
-hepatotoxic drugs,
-any recent history of malaria,dengue,any other viral or bacterial infection.

Fatty liver is a reversible condition where vacuoles of triglycerides get accumulated into the liver cell.
Excessive alcohol intake and metabolic syndrome (obesity,dyslipidemia,hypertension,diabetes) are two most common causes of fatty liver.

Other causes of fatty liver that should be considered are:
1.drugs and toxins.
2.malnutrition or rapid weight loss
3.inflammatory bowel disease
5.gastric bypass surgery.

Avoid alcohol as for as possible and get repeat testing of liver function after one month.
I would like to suggest to get physician opinion for testing of lipids,USG abdomen for fatty liver and other tests if required accordingly.

Hope this will help you.
Wish you good health.

hi there, your LFT shows only a borderline increase in direct bilirubin levels and light increase in GGT activity. Isolated GGT increase is not very significant especially in such minimal increase but it may indicate that you may be consuming alcohol and if so then you may need to cut down on the quantity. It could also indicate some biliary disorder or cholelithissis or gall stones tho' as your bilirubin levels are not significantly high it is not very probable. As of now you may not do anything except cut down on your alcohol intake if any and if there is any symptom or any deterioration in the results after 3 months then consult a physician. Take healthy diet and cut down on the fatty part. Take care.
