High Level Triglycerides Causes Rise In Sgpt Sgot Level
Don't treat labs: Omega-3's have been a massive disappointment in most areas when subjected to scientific testing. Most important is finding WHY these liver tests are up. If it's chronic hepatitis B or C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, or autoimmune hepatitis, you're going to die if you're not diagnosed & Rx'd. If this is non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, nothing will help as much as getting aerobically fit. ...Read more

Gl/H7mItd, mostly in the liver, as a way of storing energy & transported within fat carrying proteins (lipoproteins).

No: In general, smoking is not the cause of elevated liver enzymes. In your medical history I see you have a diagnosis of fatty liver. That is the likely cause of elevated liver enzymes. Other things to consider include infectious hepatitis, alcohol, toxins, tumors, and bile duct abnormalities. ...Read more
Does being a night shift worker have an effect on my high sgpt sgot level. I had a sgot level of 51 and sgpt of 151?
No: Shift work has no effect on levels of these liver enzymes. ...Read more
I have alkaline phosphatase elevated (450u/l) as well as (sgpt), (sgot), and ama test is positive, age 37y (woman), have anaemia and low level of iron?
Sort this out: You need to be told straight-up whether you are going to be diagnosed with & treated for primary biliary cirrhosis. If you also have iron deficiency anemia, the cause needs to be found. I hope you are not a non-supplementing vegetarian & that a search for possible sources of blood loss is underway. Be proactive & insist on answers. Good luck. ...Read more
My SGPT & SGOT levels are slightly elevated at 64u/l & 42u/l. Is this indicative of liver disease or liver cancer, given that I have breast cancer?
Possibly 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. ...Read more
Liver enzymes: Sgpt/sgot (ast/alt) are liver enzymes which become elevated when liver cells are damaged. Non trending elevations up to about 3 times upper limit of normal - are fairly nonspecific. Above that level there is most certainly something amiss with the liver which needs focussed investigation extremely high levels - in the thousands - are generally associated with severe toxicity or viral hepatitis. ...Read more
What to do if I have high sgpt sgot tg with hepatomegali and fattyliver. Used to take hard drinks. 35 years.85 kg male?
Get fit: I'm glad you stopped the alcohol. Now it sound like it's time to get into some serious physical fitness like when you were a teen. Remember how much fun it was? You can get it back and that'll probably save your liver and perhaps your life. Ask your physician if I'm not right. I trust hepatitis C and Wilson's have been ruled out. ...Read more
Ursodiol is not an antibiotic, it is a bile acid, usually it is used to dissolve gallstones or treat primary biliary cirrhosis. In rare case it can worsen liver function but can help liver function too, and more commonly does do so. See:http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Ursodeoxycholic_acid

Lifestyle: I trust that hepatitis C, Wilson's and the other causes of elevated transaminses with fatty liver have been ruled out. I trust you don't drink alcohol. Find some form of strenuous aerobic exercise that you enjoy, and get back into it wholeheartedly and with the same passion that gave you so much enjoyment as a teenaged male. Helath doesn't come from a pill or supplement bottle. ...Read more
FInd the cause: Elevated liver transaminases usually call for a repeat off alcohol and meds. If still up, a check for the hepatitis family, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis. As often as not, what the liver is really asking for is for you to get back to a fitness-focused lifestyle. Best wishes. ...Read more
I had a medication called doxydar just 4 hrs before doing a test for sgpt & sgot, can the medication cause significant difference in the results?
Probably not.: Although doxycycline can cause increased liver test results in about 2% of patients who take it, it would be unlikely for it to cause abnormal results just four hours after taking one capsule. Therefore, I think it is unrelated. If you did have abnormal liver tests, you should get them rechecked within three months, to be sure they have returned to normal. Good luck. ...Read more
I'm 28 and no cholesterol. But have fatty liver and sgpt sgot both high. What will be the reason?
Fatty liver.: Those with a fatty liver should generally limit fat intake, limit alcohol intake and lose weight (if there's weight to lose) via proper diet and regular exercise. That being said, it would be OK to treat yourself to a fatty meal every once in a while, meaning once a week or two. Realize that all meals will have some fat in them, so it's not like you're completely avoiding fat otherwise. ...Read more
I have SGPT 53U/L and SGOT 41U/L, A/G ratio 2.45. my BP is 100/60. Does SGPT-SGOT level indicate something to be worried?
Not necessarily, but: In it of itself, sgpt/sgot and uric acid level changes don't have a direct correlation to pain in the heel. There are several etiologiest to heel pain. However, elevated uric acid levels may indicate a gout condition and changes in sgpt/sgot incidate may indicate liver issues. ...Read more
I'm Jay, 26 M, 97.4kg with Hypertension Stage II, high SGPT&SGOT. Taking Losartan 50mg AM, Felodipine 5mg at night. Still my bp upon waking is 130/100mmhg?
Need more meds.: That BP remains a bit too high, specifically the diastolic number. For now, you need more medication, perhaps a higher dose of one medication or the other, to bring your numbers into better control. Eventually, though, weight loss will certainly help. ...Read more

It is also likely that your husband will have no further troubles, but he should get specialist consultation to see help him decide the pros and cons of taking rx to suppress the virus. ...Read more

Fatty liver disease.: The high SGPT & Triglyceride level suggests either a dietary or genetic (or both) problem leading to fatty liver disease. (The liver gets replaced by fat). This can lead to liver cirrhosis & liver failure, for which there is no cure except transplant. Lowering the triglycerides (by gemfibrozil or fenofibrate, along with other meds) can help stave off liver failure. TTYD or use HealthTap Prime. GL. ...Read more
