My Sgpt Is 48 Is It Normal
Keep an eye on it: Your physician may want to repeat this sometime. 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
Multiple see below.: SGPT is elevated for many reasons. I would reccomend that you make an appointment with a primary care Physician to further evalauate. "creatine is 58" I have never seen a value this high. perhaps 0.58? Hba1c is 5.7-- this is withing the normal range for the lab value. between 5.7 and 6.0 is considered pre-diabetic and yearly monitoring should be considered. ...Read more
What does it mean when my ALP is 83? My bilirubin total is 0.9, direct is 0.2? My ALT is 56? And my AST is 29?
Slight Abnormal: The only thing I see that is abnormal is the ALT. The liver tests are very sensitive to multiple problems and drugs. The things that jump out are alcohol, acetamenophen (tylenol) poisoning and viral hepatitis to name a few. You should see your doctor for evaluation or you could repeat the test in a month. If a Baby Boomer you should be tested for Hepatitis B and C. ...Read more
Can't really tell: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. If the patient's SGOT (an enzyme measured in a blood sample) is mildly higher than the reference range, the ordering doctor may or may not consider the result a problem, depending on the patient's illnesses and exercise activities. ...Read more
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
AST is within the: range of normal. ALT is SLIGHTLY above normal. Keep in mind, however, that different labs may have different "normal" values and that there is always inherent variability in reported results. The results must always be interpreted in the context of other information about you, including history, physical and other tests. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne ...Read more
Liver function tests: Sgpt/alt is only one of several tests for liver function. Others are sgot/ast, ggt, ldh, bilirubin as well as tests for specific diseases such as hepatitis a/b/c. Many things can elevate liver enzymes: infection, inflammation, medications, tumor, etc. 190.4 is high but your doc needs to know levels of other liver function tests to help determine the cause. Discuss test results with fp/im. ...Read more
My body temperature is normal but i feel hot sgpt level is 60 and sgot is 40 bilirubin is 2.7 ESR is also 25 what it indicate it has been since 3 week?
You're sick: Get the care of a competent physician. The "hepamerz" stuff you're taking isn't going to solve anything. You need to find why you've got notably high transaminase and bilirubin. If you're an extreme athlete, taking rx and/or doing lots of alcohol, stop ; retest. Otherwise, labs for hepatitis a/b/c, hemochromatosis, immune hepatitis, wilson's, maybe more. Would encourage you to exercise as well. ...Read more

Hi sir my lab result is here now my creatinine level is 1.13 normal range is 1.2 my sgpt is 60 normal range 36 is this dangerous? Please help ne thank
Follow it: Your creatinine is fine especially if you are physically fit. When I was lifting weights every day, mine ran 1.6 or even a bit higher. Your physician will probably repeat your SGPT off alcohol and and meds and if it is still up, run a few more labs to look for hepatitis virus, hemochromatosis, or Wilson's ...Read more
My total protein level is normal, albumin is also normal but globulin is 3.7.. Pls tell is this something to worry about?
Depends on why...: Lab values are just numbers. Their meaning depends on why the tests were done and what is happening to the person. If there is nothing wrong with the person, then values inside the normal range, or just a little outside the normal range, are usually not worrisome. The 3.7 is close to the normal range, but it is just a number without knowing the patient's story. ...Read more
