Is Sgpt 43 Normal
Based on the sgpt result the it ranges 43 for me and 53 for my wife which above normal. What is your comment and medication? Pls advise me what to do?
Do you drink?: Both of the SGPT levels are only minimally elevated. Do you take alcohol or is either of you on any medications. Either of these can explain the SGPT levels. If you do drink, abstain for three months and repeat the test. Discuss you medications with your doctor to see if one of those may be affecting your lab result. ...Read more
No: Sgpt is released from liver cells when something is injuring the cells. Chemicals such as alcohol or drugs, infections like viral hepatitis, or physical blockage from gallstones can elevate the test that high. Fat accumulation can also cause a rise in SGPT but not that high. Since you wouldn't know this number without blood testing, you and your doctor will figure out the cause and treatment. ...Read more
Find the cause: You'll get a workup. You're not taking any meds that would be likely to do this. If you drank a lot of alcohol before you were tested, that may be the explanation. Or you may have hepatitis B or C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, or just need more exercise. Your physician will be your guide. Best wishes. ...Read more
Retest: Rare folks run high SGPT with normal SGOT without evident illness. Elevated transaminases without obvious cause may be due to hepatitis b/c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, antitrypsin deficiency, medication effect (are you sure you know what your "anti-oxidant" really is?), others. ...Read more
Get worked up: If you have used alcohol and/or medications, your test will be repeated two weeks from now. If it's down, that's your warning. If not, you'll be checked for hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis and a few others. If all are normal, it may simlpy be your body's way of asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...Read more
Probably not, no.: ALT of 47.9 is so close to the ULN, that there doesn't seem to be reason to get alarmed. Medication ASAP is unlikely to be indicated. The best thing to do is contact the doc who ordered the test and ask why it was ordered? Were you having any sxs? Any other abnormal labs/tests/findings? Next steps may include repeating the test, picture tests of the abdomen/liver, or stopping a current med. :) ...Read more
My medical report says that sgpt is 125.So how could I lower the my sgpt level from 125 to normal?
Measure liver health: Alt/alanine transaminase aka serum glutamic pyruvate transaminase SGPT is an enzyme present in hepatocytes (liver cells). When the liver is damaged, it's cells leak this enzyme into the blood, where it is measured. Alt rises dramatically in acute liver damage, such as viral hepatitis, tylenol (acetaminophen) aka Acetaminophen overdose, and alcohol use. Normal is around 40. Ok to ask your doc for advise. ...Read more

Sgpt ALT level at 39, could you please advise if this level is high or what measures are in place to bring this to normal conditions.
Sounds normal: This is either normal or very close to normal depending upon your lab. In either case it is not elevated enough to pay any attention to unless you have serious signs and symptoms of liver disease. Ast and alt are not "managed" to any goal. Simply avoid liver toxins such as excessive alcohol, and certain medications such as Methotrexate and acetaminophen. ...Read more
Sgpt ALT level at 39 my age 35, could you please advise if this level is high or what measures are in place to bring this to normal conditions.
My sgpt levels are high for many years it becomes normal when I start diet control and exercise, and when my weight reduces but elevates with wt gain?
Some concern: 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, both of the enzymes are present at higher than normal levels and suggest liver damage. If you drink alcohol, please stop entirely. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

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.

No Problem: There is no problem with your liver. The "normal" ranges were determined by checking thousands of people and picking the range that most of them fell into. Occasionally, people have a number outside of that range, but it doesn't mean anything bad in this case. ...Read more
Hi! I just got the result of my sgpt blood test it was 163.95. Its quite high from a 44 normal lever. How do I lower my sgpt?
This is serious: Don't treat a lab value; this is a warning of likely serious illness. You'll be rechecked off alcohol ; medications; if still high, you'll be checked for hepatitis b and c, wilson's, hemochromatosis, autoimmune hepatitis and maybe a few others. If still up, you may be ultrasounded or biopsied. This would be a great time to get into serious physical fitness activities. Best wishes. ...Read more
