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
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
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: 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
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).

My sgpt 69 and my sgot 220...i take alcohol and smoke heavily... Does the results mean I have liver problems... How to decrease my sgpt and sgot level?
All laboratory 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. Having said that, alcohol is the cause of bad lab results. Alcohol and tobacco are bad individually and they are more than twice as bad together.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

My sgpt is 128 and sgot is 84, I don't drink alcohol regularly. How am I suppose to lower down the level and what should my diet be?
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

My A.G LEvel is. 9, S.Bilirubin (Total)-2.3, S.Bilirubin (Direcrt)-1.5, S.Bilirubin (InDirect)-0.8, SGOT-88, SGPT-73 What does it means.
It means you're sick: Please forgive my frankness. Your physician has a duty to begin or continue your workup for hyperbilirubinemia and elevated liver transaminases, and to explain what he/she is doing. This may be nothing more than too much alcohol or a medication you're sensitive to, or you may have a viral or immune hepatitis, Wilson's, hemochromatosis or some other serious illness that must be Rx's. ...Read more
After taking saaz 500 (salfasalazine) for a month test report shows alt (sgpt) is 188 iu/l and ast (sgot) is 90 iu/l. How to normalize the levels?
It depends: Sulfasalazine may be the cause of abnormal liver tests, but only in a very small percentage of patients. If you also have a fever and rash, it could be a type of hypersensitivity (allergic reaction) and might need to be stopped. You also could have some other liver problems that might need to be treated (like chronic hepatitis infection or other drugs that affect your liver). See your doctor! ...Read more

Damage to the specimen in collection or transit can raise SGOT in preference to SGPT and so can a number of serious or minor health problems. The key is the history and physical exam -- as we say in the lab, "look at the patient, not the numbers.". ...Read more
Liver function tests: Alt and ast, prior noted as SGOT and sgpt, are part of a group of enzyme known as transaminases.
