    smoking plus drinking combine effect on liver, MPV and cholestrol levels

    i am 37 yr old male.I have been drinking and smoking for almost 9 years. till last year i never felt any serious problem beside stomach upset sometimes in the morning. when i get blood test reports,
    The report was like:
    ALT 40 normal range is 10-50
    AST 25 normal range is 10-50
    GGT 67 normal range is 8-61
    MPV 14.2 normal range is 7.2-11
    LDL 115 normal range is <130
    HDL 38 normal range is 35-65
    VLDL 55 normal range is 0-40

    Trigglycerides 274 normal range is <200

    since then i start taking one a day herbal b-complex tablets along with milk thistle. I didnt bother much since the reports were not much high except the triglycerides, for which i reduced red meat intake and added vegetables in my diet. but i continued the same routine of drinking and smoking. last month when i noticed the red sweaty palms and feet and spider veins on my feet, i again go for the blood test and the results are like:

    ALT 47 normal range is 10-50
    AST 26 normal range is 10-50
    GGT 79 normal range is 8-61
    MPV 13.2 normal range is 7.2-11
    LDL 143 normal range is <130
    HDL 42 normal range is 35-65
    VLDL 36 normal range is 0-40

    Trigglycerides 179 normal range is <200

    well some reports are improved but the GGT level and LDL has gained too much. And MPV (mean platelete volume) is still high. I am off drinking over a week now and sweatness and redness on palms have decreased a bit. but I am worried about the small spidery veins. Is it due to rise in GGT level and high LDL.. What should i do to clear those spider nerves from feet......any suggestion or recommendation..?
