Patient Concerns

Good morning doctor, since last 7 years I am having elevated SGPT (ALT) levels and low HDL levels. I was diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver disease. Since 7 years I am on good diet, regular exercise. Till now I couldn't get my liver enzymes back to normal. Should I be worried? What should I do? Will such enlarged liver progress to cirrhosis, in next 20 years. ?
