Is Liv 52 Helpful In Lowering Sgot Sgpt Levels
Don't treat labs: Omega-3's have been a massive disappointment in most areas when subjected to scientific testing. Most important is finding WHY these liver tests are up. If it's chronic hepatitis B or C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, or autoimmune hepatitis, you're going to die if you're not diagnosed & Rx'd. If this is non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, nothing will help as much as getting aerobically fit. ...Read more

If he's abusing alcohol enough to hurt himself / others, they can still be within the normal range, or they can be high. If they're above 400, he's probably got alcoholic hepatitis. Sgpt tends to be lower than SGOT in drinkers. The diagnosis of alcoholism is clinical, not lab based -- but you knew that. ...Read more
