Exercise worsen...: Exercise that is intense causes athletes to be more susceptible to infection, both viral and bacterial. This has been shown in numerous studies. Whatever level of intensity you race at, you need to cut back several notches until you recoup. By the way, SGOT is frequently elevated in athletes, but it comes from muscle-not liver. If your SGPT was normal, it is not liver.
