Means nothing: I'm assuming you have no obvious health problems. The reference ranges are set up so that several percent of healthy folks will be out of the range on either side. Low 'zymes never mean anything in a person who seems healthy.

Be concerned: Sgot ; sgpt, correct? Occasionally rhabdomyolysis (heavy exercise, statins, cocaine, trauma) can elevate these, but usually they're of hepatic origin. I'd be seriously concerned -- you may have a viral or drug-induced hepatitis, or may need to lay off the alcohol, or have hemochromatosis or one of the other serious liver diseaes. Get diagnosed and treated. It's really important.

Which enzyme?: If it is alt or ast, then it is an indication of liver injury. If you drink, stop taking alcohol entirely in any form and redo the test in three months. Liver makes many other enzymes also. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/elevated-liver-enzymes/my00508.

No: Reference ranges are set up so that several percent of healthies fall outside. If the low 'zymes meant anything, you'd already know you have massive liver failure -- and you wouldn't be writing healthtap.
