A member asked:

A year ago, my sgpt was 21 iu/l, now it is 105 iu/l (reference 0-65). what can possibly raise it this way? i am underweight, rarely drink alcohol, hypertensive on meds, with normal recent lipid profile, on amitriptyline, sertraline, and a benzo?

It would not be unusual to see such a transient raise in this liver marker during and after a common viral infection. Many simple viruses affect the internal organs that way but do not create enough of a long term problem to be considered worrisome. Retesting in a few weeks can see if it is settling down as expected.
