High Sgpt Alt Kinetic Meaning
Not okay: It's a warning. It may be nothing more than your liver asking for you to go get more exercise. You may be sensitive to ibuprofen and took some. It may be a warning of smoldering hepatitis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's, hemochromatosis, or medication allergy that's waiting to kill you if untreated. Your physician knows the workup. Best wishes. ...Read more
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: 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. ...Read more
Sgpt ALT level at 39 my age 35, could you please advise if this level is high or what measures are in place to bring this to normal conditions.
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
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
Yes: Need more of the other transaminases to advise. However isolated or more elevated alt may indicate liver injury your doctor may check you for hepatitis and review your medications. ...Read more
To give you a good and valid answer I would need more information. But, in general these are relatively normal and common results and I would not raise a red flag yet. I would ask my patient if there any toxic things they are ingesting such as too much tylenol, (acetaminophen) iron or alcohol.
But this is nothing to lose sleep over yet. ...Read more
What does hepatitis b surface ab-ls test mean with a value of 0.2 and can it explain elevated ALT (sgpt) test? What other reasons can increase it?
Immunity: Most people now are vaccinated against hep b which causes an elevated hep b s about. This indicates immunity. In a unimmunized person this means prior exposure to virus. Hep b s ag would be positive in the latter case. Other causes of elevated alt are alcohol, fatty liver, medications or other genetic diseases. ...Read more
Liver function tests: 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... ...Read more

Alkaline, direct test AST (sgot)and ALT (sgpt) high levvel its test report so what we do. And what we eat.
Comply: Glad you're off meds. No alcohol either. The level of ast that you give is actually okay for some men, especially of african descent, and it may be fine. You'll get checked for hepatitis b and c, wilson's, hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis. This would be a great time to get back into a fitness-focused lifestyle. Best wishes. ...Read more
Labs:liver ("alt [sgpt]") is "high" (43).Otherwise healthy. 1st, what could cause that? 2nd, what might a person want to do about that? P.S. Don't drink.
Multiple reasons: Very mild elevations in ALT and AST frequently have no obvious cause, & upon repeating tests, have returned to normal. Liver tests that remain elevated or climb can do so because of meds (careful w acetaminophen; many meds contain it so easy to accidentally OD), nutritional supplements (some are toxic to liver), fatty liver (can be related to obesity or alcohol), viruses, & too many others to list. ...Read more

This is serious: You have hemochromatosis until proved otherwise, and this is probably why your alt is disturbingly high. Just how much of a workup you want is between you and your physician; a gene study, imaging, and/or a biopsy may be in your future. This is by far the easiest of the common very-serious diseases to manage. Best wishes. ...Read more

Clinical context: 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.

I have been diagnosis and got fatty liver. My ALT (SGPT) is 92, Lipid & Glucose e okay! Which is quiet high level. What will I do now? Dr prescribed these medicines: Viusid, Epaset, Milk Thistle & Urcodil 300mg. Are these medicine okay?
Get 2nd opinion: Milk thistle won't help. The main support for Viusid is an article from an obscure group in Cuba. Epaset is an irrational mix of nutrients. You need to have hepatitis C and Wilson's ruled out, and hit the gym really hard if you want to save your health. I see you also take hormone therapy of some sort. You need a relationship with an authentic, scientific physician. Your liver wants exercise. ...Read more
Liver enzymes are high alt/sgpt is at 107 u/l and ast/sgot os at 37 u/l and alk phos is at 29 u/l and mono% is 11.8% and neut% is 41.2%. What's wrong?
Get a workup: Your physician may have you stop alcohol & meds & repeat; if normal it's your warning. Otherwise a check for hepatitis b & c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, and a1at deficiency may be in order; all but the last are very treatable but likely to kill if ignored. If all normal, maybe a fitness lifestyle focus is in your future to your benefit. Cell %'s are worthless viewed alone. ...Read more
