I have elevated levels of alt (sgpt) and ast (sgot). what does that mean?

Liver function tests

Diabetes
ALT and AST, prior noted as SGOT and SGPT, are part of a group of enzyme known as transaminases. They rise if something is inflaming the liver, such as a viral illness, mononucleosis, alcohol toxic effects, obesity or diabetes causing fatty infiltration in liver, adverse drug effects from a variety of medications...

I have high levels of triglycerid and alt (sgpt) and ast (sgot). what does this mean?

Possibly fatty liver

Fatty_liver
Triglycerides are very long chains of repeated fatty acid molecules, that are intermediary products of fat and carbohydrate metabolism. they function as building blocks for various parts of the cell. When they are elevated, it may be genetics, diet, fat intake, or overweight condition all at play. ALT & AST are liver enzymes. In this case, the most likely meaning is fatty liver.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Sgpt alt level at 39 , could you please advise if this level is high or what measures are in place to bring this to normal conditions.

Sounds normal

Methotrexate
This is either normal or very close to normal depending upon your lab. In either case it is not elevated enough to pay any attention to unless you have serious signs and symptoms of liver disease. AST and ALT are not "managed" to any goal. Simply avoid liver toxins such as excessive alcohol, and certain medications such as methotrexate and acetaminophen.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

My Uric acid level is at 8.4 mg/dl. Alt (SGPT) is 52.10 Iu/L.Cholestrol is at 232.60 mg/dl. Direct LDL cholestrol is 152.90 mg/dl. Plz advise actions.

Find cause

Hyperuricemia
Assuming you are asymptomatic. See if you can manage LDL by diet and starting hard aerobic exercise. Not concerned about uric acid if you are not symptomatic. Your liver enzymes will require a workup. Stop all alcohol and unnecessary Rx's and repeat the liver enzymes in ~2 weeks; if still high, testing for hepatitis B & C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis & a few others is next.

How can I lower levels of ast (sgot) and alt (sgpt)?

Depends on the cause

Ast
SGOT and SGPT are liver enzymes. Lowering them depends on the cause of the elevation. Some medications can cause the elevation and stopping the medications will result in normalizing them. Alcohol, gallstones, infections (mono, hepatitis), and other liver toxins can also cause elevated liver enzymes.

Can SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT) levels be lowered with dietary changes?

Depends on the

Ast
reason for elevation of enzymes. If you drink alcohol, stop for about three months and retest. If you are diabetic, control blood glucose better, if you are overweight, lose weight; if you are on any medication, discuss the side effects of medication with your doctor.
