Hi doctor,

I did KFT and LFT. I have a SGPT of 60 U/L and SGOT of 54 U/L. I have a uric acid level of 9 mg/dL. Now, I have pain in my knees.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I am not taking any medicine for pain. I am taking Thyronorm 100 mg.

Answered by Dr. Sugreev Singh

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Please mention whether you have pain in your hand joints. You seem to have a slight infection in the liver with increased SGPT (alanine transaminase) and SGOT levels (aspartate transaminase). You can take tablet Hepamerz 150 mg (L-Ornithine L-Aspartate with Pancreatin) once a day for ten days. You can take tablet Indomethacin 25 mg once a day for ten days. You can take tablet Pantop 40 mg (Pantoprazole) once a day before meal for ten days. Continue taking Thyronorm. For high uric acid levels, try to take a low protein diet. Take more veggies and fruits. Avoid eating fish or meat. You can take tablet Colcry 0.6 mg twice a day. Have a follow-up after ten days.
