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

Minimal elevation: 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. ...Read more

How can I lower levels of AST (sgot) and ALT (sgpt)?

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

What do you suggest if my sgpt level is 308.0 and my sgot level is 118.0. what do I need to do to lower the enzyme levels?

Liver damage: Thees are markers of liver damage, but don't tell the full story. You need to provide a full history of your risks (alcohol, toxins, metabolic state, exposures, etc.) and go from there to discover the likely cause of the damage so you can remove or treat it. In the interim, avoid things known to cause liver damage, like alcohol. ...Read more

How to lower my sgpt level of 213.4, sgot: 106.2, and ggt: 259.9?

Not voluntary: 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. ...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?

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
