How Can You Normalize Sgpt And Sgot Results
Why are they up?: Elevated liver enzymes (sgpt, sgot, also called AST and alt) are signs of inflammation in the liver, but they do not tell you the cause. The treatment will depend on the cause. A few of the common causes are overuse of alcohol. Being overweight, certain medications, infections, autoimmune diseases, and metabolic diseases (copper or iron storage diseases). Further investigation is needed. ...Read more
This is serious: Your history of fever, malaise, aches, and yellow skin and eyes tells me you have hepatitis from some cause. It may be allergy to a medication you took, a viral infection, or a serious illness such as hemochromatosis or Wilson's. Your physician knows how to do the workup. ...Read more
Maybe: Your GGT is normal. Mild elevations in the other enzymes can be from many causes. In general, the tests should be repeated. Many times they are back to normal. If still elevated, further testing should be done to rule out causes of liver disease. ...Read more
Please tell me the meaning of the result billirubin total =2mg/dl billirubin direct =.6mg/dl sgpt, AST =39u/l sgot, as?
Mild elevation: There is insufficient information to provide a meaningful answer. 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. ...Read more

Liver cell damage:
The elevated liver enzymes suggest liver injury and warrant further investigation. Do you drink? If you do, stop for a couple of weeks and recheck. Are you on any medication? It would be prudent to take it up with your doctor and consult this site for info.

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

Sir my lft test result is sgpt is 53 sgot is 41 albumin globumin ratio is 2.19 is it any problem?
My lft test shows sgot as 139 and sgpt as 199,my ultrasound shows nothing. What do these results indicate?
It's serious: These may be repeated off alcohol and medications. If they're still high or if this doesn't seem to be the issue, you'll be tested for hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, and autoimmune hepatitis. These are deadly if missed, fairly easy to treat if detected. If all are normal, you may simply need more exercise and a better diet. Stay proactive. ...Read more

Until this is sorted out avoid alcohol and acetaminophen. ...Read more

No: Any hemolyzed sample has sat at the lab or office too long, and the red blood cells have broken apart, releasing their contents. Any reading from such a sample is suspect, and should be repeated. ...Read more

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.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...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
