What causes elevated liver enzymes?

My daughter is 35 years old. She has sludge in gall bladder and was to be operated on Monday, but fron gear blood tests it shows that her enzymes are extremely high - SGPT at 1029, hence surgery cancelled. She is to undergo MRCP today. Is this serious? What is the right diet... She is advised totally boiled diet.

Hello,

The symptoms of your daughter seem to be related to hepatitis.

It is probably viral hepatitis.

I would recommend bed rest, abstaining from alcohol, and taking medication to help relieve symptoms.

The symptoms will relieve after a few weeks.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi,
