ANSWER: Hello Fazal
I hear your distress. It's really important to look after your liver.
Omeprazole can have a detrimental effect on the liver, but I would not expect it from 1 capsule a couple of times a month - however, if your blood draw was done within 24 hours of a dose then this could be related.
It is important for you to understand that "Acidity" is not caused by a lack of Omeprazole.. so it is likely that you have something else going on.
Your ALP level is also elevated - this can be due to bone breakdown or may indicate a liver blockage or dysfunction - the latter being the most likely in your case.
I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance - you really need to have a thorough work-up to eliminate other possible reasons your liver is under stress.

QUESTION: Sir If i have fatty liver then whats ur advice how to control it.through walk?or exercise beacuse i did not started walk or any exercise
If you have had a diagnosis of Fatty Liver Disease (usually from a scan or biopsy), then I suggest you get Dr Sandra Cabot's book titled Fatty Liver You can reverse It" you are not overweight it is important for you to follow a healthy, low fat, high vegetable and a low carbohydrate diet - the incorporation of green smoothies would be a good step (you will need a powerful blender such as the OmniBlender).
Regular exercise (a minimum of 1 hour daily) should form part of a healthy lifestyle.
The inclusion of the herb Milk Thistle would be to your advantage as well.
All the best
