Fatty liver disease.: The high SGPT & Triglyceride level suggests either a dietary or genetic (or both) problem leading to fatty liver disease. (The liver gets replaced by fat). This can lead to liver cirrhosis & liver failure, for which there is no cure except transplant. Lowering the triglycerides (by gemfibrozil or fenofibrate, along with other meds) can help stave off liver failure. TTYD or use HealthTap Prime. GL.
