I was diagnosed with stage one non-alcoholic fatty liver disease after an ultrasound scan last year. Also, my liver function test (high AST and ALT as well unconjugated bilirubin) is abnormal having excluded infectious causes and other causes of liver inflammation. What could really be going on and what should I do? I have been on the tablet Livolin for three months and the liver function test remains abnormal.
I have downloaded your laboratory reports from the attached reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) and the malarial parasite of P. falciparum is seen. High SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase) and unconjugated bilirubin are mildly high. Unconjugated bilirubin is mild high which reflects the breakdown of red blood cells and most probably due to malarial infection. High SGOT and SGPT could be due to both fatty liver and malarial infections. You should better visit a local doctor for the medication for malaria, try weight reduction, and avoid fatty foods. Please follow up if you have any further related queries about it.
