Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query on icliniq.com.

  • Increased ALT (alanine transaminase), AST (aspartate aminotransferase) and GGT (gamma-glutamyl transferase) indicates liver injury or gallbladder injury.
  • I would suggest you to carry out ultrasound examination of abdomen to rule out fatty liver or gallbladder disease.
  • You need proper clinical examination and a few more investigations. Other investigations include routine hemogram, RBS (random blood sugar), RFT (renal function test), lipid profile and viral markers.
  • Fatty liver is a reversible stage and it can be reversed by changing lifestyle and diet. If it is due to fatty liver then you should increase your physical activity in the form of exercise, walking, etc.
  • You should avoid red meat, high fat milk products, fried and fatty food. You should take lot of vegetables and fruits in your diet.
