I am 27 y.o, female and my sgpt is consistently rising. On january 13, 2017, it was 123 but now it's already 191. How to treat this? And what's the c
A rising liver enzyme warrants consultation with a doctor. If you are overweight, lose weight (easier said than done) if you drink alcohol — stop doing that; if you are taking any medications, discuss those with your doctor. You need to ascertain the cause of rising SGPT and treatment will depend on the cause.
Wish you good health. ...Read more

Find the cause: This can be due to anything from too much alcohol to a medicine you're allergic to hep B / C to hemochromatosis, Wilson's (you're not too old), autoimmune hepatitis, a few others, or your liver just asking you to exercise more and harder.

27 years old female (asian), diagnosed with a fatty liver having sgpt level of 315. I don't drink or smoke. What can I take for pain and discomfort?
Maybe new diagnosis?: In my experience, simple fatty liver seldom causes liver function tests to elevate to the degree you describe (what is the "normal" range for your lab?) how long have your tests been high? Have you had a liver biopsy? Have your doctors ruled out mitigating factors for macrovesicular fat: infectious, nutritional, metabolic, drug and substance-related? Is your fatty liver microvesicular instead? ...Read more

It does not appear that you have active hepatitis B infection. Are you taking any medications? Do you drink alcohol? How much do you weigh? It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

No: Look for the cause. This may be your wake-up that you need to drink less, or that your body's asking for more exercise (the most common nowadays), or you're allergic to some rx. It may also warn of hepatitis b, hepatitis c, wilson's, hemochromatosis or autoimmunity. Labs aren't things to treat, they warn of undiagnosed, treatable illness. ...Read more
Find cause: As a pathologist, i always tell folks to look at the person more than the labs. High SGPT is hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's, or drug toxicity until proven otherwise. Usually it is proved otherwise, but we need to rule these out. Once done, easy on the alcohol and hit the gym hard and the lifestyle-related causes of high SGPT (the most common ones) will be history and you'll feel better. ...Read more
