How can you lower your SGPT and SGOT levels?

Liver or muscle ?

Ast
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?

Alcohol?

Do you drink? If you do, stop. Avoid taking Tylenol. The levels are barely above normal and do not need intervention. Discuss the results with your doctor at the next visit as all lab results need to interpreted in the total clinical context.

Can you tell me is high sgpt and sgot level fatal?

Liver disease

Ast
The higher the level the sicker the liver as a rule, but what is more concerning is if the prothrombin time elevates. This is caused by a liver that is unable to produce clotting proteins and is a very concerning sign for liver failure.

My sgpt and sgot level are high 83 & 75 respectively..what should be my diet i m indian vegiterian person?

Do you drink?

Diet
Your enzyme levels are only mildly elevated. If you take alcohol, stop for three months and retest. If you do not drink, you may wish to get tested for hepatitis virus infection. If all of these are negative, try a high protein diet and vitamin supplements.

How to lower my SGPT level of 213.4, SGOT: 106.2, and GGT: 259.9?

Not voluntary

Ast
you can't just lower your liver enzymes by wishing. the cause has to be known and the offending factor removed. Hepatitis can do it, alcohol but so can statins (cholesterol medicines) . Talk to your doctor and find out what can be done about it and things you should avoid to exacerbate it, and alcohol is definitely one of them.

Can DM, COPD,HTN or its medications cause rise in SGOT and SGPT level?

Yes

Ast
Some medications for DM are metabolized in the liver. Most inhaled meds for COPD can also affect liver function. Some diseases of the lung, like alpha one antitrypsin disease present as both COPD and liver enzyme elevation.

Taking immunosupressive medicine after kidney transplant can cause rise in AST(SGOT),ALT(SGPT),GGTP and ALP level or not??????

Liver function eleva

Sgot
Depending upon the type and combination of immunosuppressives elevated liver function tests can be seen but hepatitis must be excluded. Nephrotoxicity is the main culprit

My age is 29 yrs and my SGPT level is 54 and SGOT level is 42 , what is the best way to lower it down?Is it a big concern ?

Minimal elevation

Ast
Your liver enzymes are minimally elevated. If you drink, abstain for three months and repeat the test. Are you on any medication? Some drugs can affect the results. All lab results need to be evaluated in the clinical context and your doctor is in the best position to do that.
