May father aged 57 liver test says sgpt/ast as 64 and sgpt/alt as 85...What precautions and food should be consumed?

Check with physician: These numbers alone are not far out of the normal range. That being said and not knowing any other information about the patient, it would be best if your father would see a physician to determine if he needs any treatment or other guidelines for his liver and his general health. ...Read more

Liver (Definition)

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

If fatty liver is the main cause for high sgpt. What precaution should be taken to lower it?

If fatty liver is the main cause for high sgpt. What precaution should be taken to lower it?

One of the causes: There ate numerous causes of high sgpt: a biochemical marker if liver inflammation. Gpt is only one of these. Others need to be checked, e.g. Sgot, alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin, others. These, in context of history, physical exam, and maybe other tests, sonogram of other imaging, or liver biopsy can confirm diagnosis. Meds, drugs, infections, tumors, other, can raise got. ...Read more

Male 28yr old had Hepatitis A in end of last December. All test level decrease but sgpt at 50 and gamma at 90. Recent USG shows liver at 16.1. Worry?

Male 28yr old had Hepatitis A in end of last December. All test level decrease but sgpt at 50 and gamma at 90. Recent USG shows liver at 16.1. Worry?

Hep A prognosis: 85 % of hepatitis A infected individuals will have full recovery in 3 months and almost all will have full recovery in 6 months. Your case which happened 6 months ago and liver enzymes are now normal should have good prognosis. Jaundice and hepatomegaly are most common clinical findings so your liver may still enlarged. Take care and good luck!!! . ...Read more

My sgpt 69 and my sgot 220...i take alcohol and smoke heavily... Does the results mean I have liver problems... How to decrease my sgpt and sgot level?

My sgpt 69 and my sgot 220...i take alcohol and smoke heavily... Does the results mean I have liver problems... How to decrease my sgpt and sgot level?

Quit drinking: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, alcohol is the cause of bad lab results. Alcohol and tobacco are bad individually and they are more than twice as bad together.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Does lower SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT) levels (10 and 14 respectively) means weaker liver function? What is the average number of these hormones in blood?

Does lower SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT) levels (10 and 14 respectively) means weaker liver function? What is the average number of these hormones in blood?

Not necessarily: Liver function is mainly looked at through total protein, albumin, international normalized ratio levels, which are proteins that the liver produces to help other parts of the body-if they are consistently low then it can suggest liver dysfunction or under functioning. AST and ALT are markers also, but not as specific for liver dysfunction as the above mentioned. ...Read more

My sgpt is 41 u/l so how's the status of my liver? What does that mean?

One of many tests: Sgpt/alt is one of the many markers of liver function. Level of 41 is near normal, but that does not mean that your liver is normal since there are many different disorder affecting the liver that may not raise sgpt. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. ...Read more

Does sgpt (alt)=78 means liver malfunction or some. Other related problems?

Does sgpt (alt)=78 means liver malfunction or some. Other related problems?

Elevated LFT: Yes, your alt is elevated. However, based on one time measurement, it is hard to tell whether it is a random elevation or it is a chronic liver problem. I usually repeat alt and ast (SGOT) within the next 6 months. If still elevated, then I recur to chronic viral hepatitis panel to rule out hep. B/c. If that is negative, I do other bloodwork and get a liver ultrasound. ...Read more

If you're ALT/SGPT liver test is 105 does that mean it's high or anything bad necessarily?

If you're ALT/SGPT liver test is 105 does that mean it's high or anything bad necessarily?

This is serious: Most folks run 20 or under and the reference range top is probably 40. Listen, friend. You'll have this repeated after two week off medication and alcohol, if appropriate. If it's still up, you'll get a workup for several deadly-if-missed, easy-enough-to treat illnesses (hep B/C, hemochromatosis, WIlson's, autimmunity). It may simply be your body's way of asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am having atorvastatin10 since 2007...Since then my sgpt increase. At present it is 68.2010 it was 34.How do I protest my liver.

I am having atorvastatin10 since 2007...Since then my sgpt increase. At present it is 68.2010 it was 34.How do I protest my liver.

Talk to prescriber: If your liver enzymes are going up on atorvastatin, most authorities would strongly consider discontinuing it. Other statin drugs may not have the same effect, and the most common strategy is to switch to another statin (like mevacor, crestor, (rosuvastatin) pravachol) and follow the liver enzymes (just be SGOT as well as sgpt). Talk to your health care provider who is giving you the Lipitor about how to proceed. ...Read more

If sgpt level become 89, is it a liver injury?

You have "hepatitis": Hepatitis is defined as inflammation of liver cells, as is indicated by elevation in serum transaminases, like SGPT (alt). Hepatitis can be caused by a variety of issues (infectious, ischemic, metabolic, toxic, infiltrative, alcohol-related, drugs, etc.). It is impossible to say why your liver tests are elevated without more information--so, what tests have been done & what has been ruled out? ...Read more

What's the medicine to normalize sgpt and shot enzime in the liver?

No one med.: These are elevated when the liver sustains injury or some other stimuli as it indicates disruption of the liver cells. Therefore if the process causing this is stopped, SGOT & SGPT go back down. So no one med does this. If hepatitis, vaccine and supportive care do it, if infection, like malaria, therapy like quinine, if cancer, surgery. It depends on your underlying illness/issue. ...Read more

Can you please tell me about fatty liver and how it related with the 201 sgpt?

Fatty Liver: Fatty liver represents an increase in fat deposits in the hepatocytes (liver cells) and causes the transaminase enzymes (ast and alt, or SGOT and sgpt) to increase. It is often caused by alcohol, obesity, or diabetes and the elevated enzyme levels can come down to normal if those causative factors are improved. ...Read more

My sgpt is 190.04. Is it serious. What are the causes. Does it lead to liver cirosis?

Maybe serious.: Sgpt in itself is not dangerous and does not lead to cirrhosis. It is a marker of liver damage. It goes up with active liver cell damage and goes down when that damage is over. Levels of 190 are fairly non specific and could be due to just about anything. You should speak with the doc who ordered the test. There are several causes of SGPT elevation that could lead to cirrhosis. ...Read more

Find the cause: Listen, man. This is serious and if your physician is doing his/her job, you need it worked up. If it's up while you're off meds and alcohol, then you need to be checked for viral hepatitis b & c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, antitrypsin deficiency and maybe a few others. If all are normal, perhaps it's the metabolic syndrome and you'll get a rx for a fitness-focused lifestyle. ...Read more

My sgpt lebvel is 66 and my sonography report is fatty infiltration in liver is it dangerous and what is precotion I need?

Caution...: Fatty liver disease means the liver is swollen and enlarged due to fatty change. The disorder is associated with other metabolic changes including diabetes, high triglycerides and obesity. When the fat causes inflammation in the liver (detectable on liver biopsy) there is a greater risk of cirrhosis (scarring and hardening of the liver). If you are overweight, then weight loss is recommended. ...Read more

My sgpt 163 & sgot 184 is this reading dangerous to my liver?

Yes, in the long run: Your liver function tests are clearly abnormal, but before recommending treatment, you need to determine the cause. While this may be related to fatty liver, other causes should be ruled out, including Hepatitis A, B and C, as well as a review of your medications. Treatment would then be recommended based on this. If fatty liver, then weight loss and low fat diet will be recommended. ...Read more
