What are the side effects of consuming Livolin Forte in the short & long term ?

I am 53 yrs male non-alcoholic. Height 164 cm & weight 84 kg. Total cholestrol 5.1 mmol/l with zocor medication. Recently my blood chemistry (liver function test) revealed that my SGOT/AST & SGPT/ALT readings of 132v & 232v respectively. My doctor explained that I am having fatty liver . He then prescibed me to take Livolin Forte capsules twice (morning & at night) daily. Can doctor explain to me more about the readings of my liver function test (SGOT/AST & SGPT/ALT) whether very alarming or not ? What are the side effects of consuming Livolin Forte in the short & long term? Thank you. Hamzah Nassir.

Hi Welcome to HealthCareMagic Forum

The normal level of SGOT - 35to70 and SGPT - 15 to 40 range..
your liver enzymes is moderately elevated.. since the liver enzymes are high if you are Alcoholic then you must stop immediately, because it will lead to further damage.. the tablets given to you contains of liver protective agents and vitamins.. there wont be side effects...

Hi Hamzah, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your BMI is very high that is 31.7, which means you are overweight. Fatty liver per se does not cause serious healthy issue, it suggests fat deposition over liver which causes hepatitis that is liver inflammation. This may have caused elevation in your Liver enzymes. Don't get alarmed, You will have to just exercise regularly like cardio, crunches, push up, brisk walks for an hour daily. Avoid high calorie foods like junk and others, eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Do not worry about the side effects of Livolin Forte, it is prescribed as it acts as a dietary supplement to support the vital functions of the liver, as it maintains the structural and functional integrity of the cell membrane, that is hepatocytes. At higher dosage, it may cause a reduced appetite, nausea, abdominal bloating, gastrointestinal pain and diarrhea. You should be taking it as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
