Don't Rx labs: You indicate that you have a history of known liver disease. You need to learn the cause. With mixed direct and indirect being high, this is almost certainly intrinsic liver disease and this is serious. But you ask only, "can i drink alcohol?" if alcohol is the cause of your liver disease, this is a suicide course. If not, you need to find what's wrong with your liver ; seek rx, alcohol-free.
