This may simply be your liver's way of asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...Read more

My medical report says that sgpt is 125.So how could I lower the my sgpt level from 125 to normal?
Measure liver health: Alt/alanine transaminase aka serum glutamic pyruvate transaminase SGPT is an enzyme present in hepatocytes (liver cells). When the liver is damaged, it's cells leak this enzyme into the blood, where it is measured. Alt rises dramatically in acute liver damage, such as viral hepatitis, tylenol (acetaminophen) aka Acetaminophen overdose, and alcohol use. Normal is around 40. Ok to ask your doc for advise. ...Read more

Does smoking affect the rise of my sgpt? Last 2 months it was 164.5. And I checked it today, it was 234.33. Can silymarin capsules help lower it down?
Smoking should not: Have any effect of which I am aware. The most important question is the source of the elevated ALT, which statistically speaking is likely hepatitis C or alcohol, or the combination, although there are hundreds of other causes. Silymarin, while widely promoted, lacks evidence of effectiveness in several randomized controlled trials, but couldn't hurt. If its hep C, GET TREATMENT. Alcohol? - STOP ...Read more
Liver or muscle?: If you are taking cholesterol pills. ..Lower the dose or stop them, and recheck levels. Otherwise the most common cause is prob. "fatty liver" (in even mild overweight, in diabetics or metabolic syndrome) if the numbers are less than 100 and you have had them for several weeks or months. A liver ultrasound will confirm it. There is no proven treatment. Get tested for hepatitis a, b and c. Muscle? ...Read more
Whoa: If you have an elevated sgpt, you need to discover the cause. I'm going to assume it's not just heavy exercise. You'll get a decent workup for hepatitis b and c, medication effect (repeat off alcohol and all nonessential meds -- ibuprofen's notorious), hemochromatosis, wilson's, and a few others. If still up, your best move is heavy-duty fitness activities rather than hokey "magic food" remedies. ...Read more
Depends on the cause: 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. ...Read more
