Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. You have liver disease maybe because of drinking. This is shown in the Liver function te st report. You have not written about the ALT/AST/SGOT/SGPT results but I expect them to be changed. Stop drinking right away and see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis. All the best. Hope this helps you.
