How can abnormal liver function be treated?
Q: I am a 40 years old man having slightly abnormal liver function tests (LFT) for the last 5 years. My total bilirubin is 2.3 of which 1.9 is indirect. ALT is 52 and GGT is 150. I have mildly high cholesterol for which I am taking Storvas 5 mg. For abnormal LFTs pre-date I use statins. Sonography taken 2 years back indicated fatty liver but is normal now. No symptoms, NAD on physical examination. I am an extremely moderate drinker and my BMI is 26. I do exercises regularly. A complete abstinence for 6 months has no effect on bilirubin, as I took Udiliv 300 mg/ Viboliv. However ALT/AST came within limits and GGT drops marginally with these medications. Presently, I am taking no medications for liver except ayurvedic and Storvas 5 mg. Please advise.
A:There are several issues that I note from the details that you have provided:
- You have history of fatty liver with deranged LFTs.
- History of moderate drinking
- Medications: Ayurvedic and Statins
