Hi doctor,

Welcome to icliniq.com. There are several concerns to address based on the information provided. Abnormal liver function tests can indicate various conditions, including hepatitis C infection and non-alcoholic liver disease caused by cholesterol deposition in the liver or active hepatitis B infection, as well as alcoholic liver disease. Additionally, high cholesterol, low vitamin D, and B12 deficiencies are evident. It is important to determine if any medication is being taken for these issues. Recommended investigations include a complete hepatitis B panel, including hepatitis E antigen and antibody, hepatitis B core antigen and antibody, as well as hepatitis B surface antibody. Additionally, a hepatitis C antibody test and an ultrasound of the liver are advised. The proposed treatment plan involves taking 50000 IU of Vitamin D once a week for 12 weeks and receiving a B12 injection or taking 1000 mg of vitamin B12 daily for a week. It is crucial to consult with a specialist doctor, discuss the findings, and obtain their consent before initiating any medication. Receiving guidance from an online internal medicine physician and providing them with blood and ultrasound reports for follow-up would be beneficial.
