Liver function: Sgpt is a single enzyme marker of possible liver disease. The normal SGPT may or may not represent normal liver function. Hepatitis of any type may go through periods of inactivity where liver function is normal. When a virus that is a hepatitis virus, invades a liver cell, the cell dies and enzymes are released into the bloodstream. These enzymes including SGPT are then measur to evaluate potential liver problems.
