hospitalized due to dengue/breakbone fever,Need to lower SGPT level further

My sgpt it was at 600 about 5 months ago when I was hospitalized due to dengue/breakbone fever. It was constantly going down since then (300 about 4 months ago and 160 as of last month). My question is: Are there food that I need to avoid? should I completely avoid drinking alcohol from now on? Also, what type of exercise should I need to do to lower it further?

Your SGPT will gradually normalise. Dengue is not a chronic disease. So the damage to your liver is temporary. There are no strict diet restrictions which you should follow. But it is always good to avoid oily & spicy foods. Avoiding alcohol altogether is a very good idea, although it is not must in your case.

Take care.

Your SGPT will normalize if no other Liver Disease is present, Alcohol is absolutely
ill advised, it is a Liver Toxic, Deep fried food, fatty food, should be avoided, increase
Sweets if you do not suffer from Diabetes.
