Dr. Abid :

Hi there...

Dr. Abid :

Please tell me do you have your ultrasonography to see liver texture?

Dr. Abid :

Thanks.

Customer:

No

Dr. Abid :

Regarding your question i want to tell you that normal level of ALT range between 5 - 60 U/L you have little raised level of ALT and you have had no ultrasounography to see liver texture regarding that i want to tell you that normally in patients who are alcholic GTT enzyme is raised but if there is fatty liver because of alcohol use then someone may have raise level of ALT ,so i will suggest you to get ultraonography and GTT (GAMMA GLUTAMYL TRANSFERASE) test.
