Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to have few important details. You age? Do you drink alcohol heavily? What about using pain killers?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Age is 54, male. I am not a heavy drinker nor do drugs and if I do drink, beer only. I rarely take any Tylenol or Aleve. Since my enzymes have been up and down since February, only drank beer on a couple of occasions
Doctor: Dr. Amir, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the details. I would like to say that there are few important possibilities which should be investigated such as alcoholic liver disease, Hepatitis B and c (need to be ruled out), biliary disease. I will suggest to have further important tests such as magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, Hepaptitis B and C screening. I will also suggest to see Liver specialist.

Please click positive rating hopefully excellent. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek. Don't worry if you forget anything you can always come back to me.

Best wishes
Dr. Amir Javed
