Hi doctor,

I am a 30 year old male. My weight is 85 kg and my height is 174 cm. I am non-smoker and I do not drink alcohol. My problems are gas formation, uneasy feeling after meals and lack of energy. My bowel does not get cleared properly and I feel too much tired after hard work. My heart beat become too fast during this time. I also have breathing problems after running.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and your complaints.

  • Having fat in liver is normal, but more than 5 to 10% fat is called fatty liver disease.
  • SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase) are raised in this condition.
  • Take tablet Atorvastatin 10 mg once daily.
  • Follow regular monitoring of blood sugar and reporting.
  • If you maintain the above instructions then it can be reversed. Report back to me with the progress after 15 days.

Revert back after 15 days to a general practitioner online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/general-practitioner
