Hello

Your findings suggests raised GGT,ALT and total bilirubin level.

Increased GGT and ALT may indicate liver injury.It may be due to many reasons like hepatitis,alcohol intake etc.

You may need few more investigations like routine hemogram,viral markers,ultrasound of abdomen.
I suggest tablet ursodeoxycholic acid 300 mg twice daily for three months to my patients.It helps in regeneration of liver cells.

I also suggest to take vitamin B complex capsules.Vitamin K can be prescribed in needed.
I suggest follow up test after one month.
Avoid alcohol if you take it.

Get well soon.
Take Care
