Patient's Query

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. Just make sure to observe a few precautions, such as completely avoiding alcohol and minimizing the intake of fatty foods. Also, stay away from passive or active smoking, as it can adversely affect the liver. With no symptoms present, you should get well soon. Remember to take care of yourself, drink plenty of water, and continue with your medications.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
