    It shows mildly abnormal liver tests. What is the value of alkaline phosphatase ?

    Also it is important to know about the symptoms of the patient rather than just labs . Is there any alcohol involvement ?

    Hi,

    Your dad has loss of appetite (anorexia), raised bilirubin, AST, ALT, Thrombocytopenia, anemia and anicocytosis. He has history of alcohol and smoking. This suggests he has alcoholic hepatitis. He needs to stop alcohol immediately in order to reverse his liver damage.
