Find cause: You're a young man and your elevated alt/sgpt (not a %, a real number) indicates something wrong that needs to be addressed. You need hepatitis b and c ruled out, along with hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis, antytrypsin deficiency and medication effect. Fitness is a great idea especially if ultrasound shows fat in your liver. ...Read more
Liver inflammation: Sgpt is one of the enzymes (the other related one being sgot) produced as part of liver metabolism. If either are high, this indicates some problem with the liver causing inflammation such as alcohol, infection, gallstones, viral hepatitis, or a great many other things. Many times this is temporary but if your doctor discovers this, (s)he will follow up to make sure it normalizes. ...Read more
Follow-up: We don't treat lab values, but they are guides to workups. Probably you'll get this repeated after two weeks off alcohol and all meds you don't truly need. If it's still up, a workup will be performed. We'll rule in/out such entities as hepatitis B and C, Wilson's, hemochromatosis, and autoimmune hepatitis. It may just be your liver asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...Read more

Concern not dangerou: Sgpt = alt, a "liver enzyme". It can be due to a number of causes like fatty liver disease (very common now a days) or inflammation from viral hepatitis, metabolic, alcohol, autoimmune disorders, medications, etc. Without knowing more, I wouldn't say it is dangerous, but a concern so I would seek consultation from a liver specialist as to discuss with you what the next steps are. ...Read more
Find cause first:
You need to determine why is the SGPT level high and address that cause. At a minimum, do not use alcohol at all. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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.

Elevated sgpt: This elevation of sgpt signifies liver inflammation which could be from alcohol excess, viral infection, fatty infiltration, medication side effect, biliary or gall bladder dysfunction, etc. A gastroenterologist or hepatologist is best qualified to evaluate you and answer your question, but in any of the above conditions would take longer than three days to improve enough for the sgpt to normalize ...Read more
High sgpt: If all your other liver enzymes are normal and there is no evidence of hepatitis a, b, or c and if a liver ultrasound is ok, the first thing I would think about is alcohol excess. I also would avoid taking any herbs or unusual "nutritional "supplements. Have your liver enzymes checked again after abstaining from alcohol for a few weeks. Your physician will advise you. ...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
