Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Nice to meet you
This is not very high at all
are you overweight at all?
I don't think so I am 5ft 8 and weigh 12 stone 3 ibs
Then the alcohol likely caused it
repeat the number in 3 weeks. should be normal
you there Andrew?
yes thank you I did have a high reading last year of 117 this came down to 48 in two months of moderate Drinking I am concerned I could have weakened my liver what would be a normal reading plse Dr Phil
anything less than mid 40s is good
so you were close to normal
you should have a liver ultrasound and a hepatitis panel to make sure this is not related to that
Dr Phil thank you when I next go for a blood test how many alcohol free days Should I have before going
Dr Phil thank you I will do
Any more questions for me?
I know that moderate drinking is sensible but are there any supplements that help prevent and or repair alcohol damage
no there are not
the things like milk thistle don't work
Dr Phil thank you moderation and days of it is then thank you for your help I have no further questions.
Did I do excellent work for you Andrew?
You did thank you it has set my mind at rest that this is not a very high reading and was likely caused by my weekend excesses which are not normal for me
thank you Andrew.
would you be so kind as to rate me excellent before leaving?
thank you Andrew
have a great day
