A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You have liver disease maybe because of drinking. This is shown in the Liver function test 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.
