Hi doctor,

I am a 29 year old male. My weight is 75 kg and height is 5'11". Two years ago, I was a heavy drinker. But, nowadays I only drink beer once a week for about 6 to 7 pints. My SGOT AND SGPT levels were much higher two years ago. I think they were around 150 to 175. I just got my LFT done by yesterday and everything is in normal except GGTP 74 and SGPT 66. I was taking Liv 52 DS two tablets twice daily for the last three months. Do I need to worry about these levels? How do I lower these levels? Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The liver function test report looks fine (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Although slightly elevated liver enzymes could mean slight inflammation, this is well within acceptable limits.
  • There are a few precautions you must observe with complete avoidance of alcohol and fatty foods as much as possible. Other than that, this looks fine.
  • Of course, also avoid passive or active smoking since this affects the liver adversely.
  • You should get well soon if there are no symptoms. Take care. Drink lots of water and continue the medications.
