Concern not dangerou: Sgpt is the same as alt, a "liver enzyme".

Lifestyle: I trust that hepatitis C, Wilson's and the other causes of elevated transaminses with fatty liver have been ruled out. I trust you don't drink alcohol. Find some form of strenuous aerobic exercise that you enjoy, and get back into it wholeheartedly and with the same passion that gave you so much enjoyment as a teenaged male. Helath doesn't come from a pill or supplement bottle. ...Read more

More info needed: Viral infection, medication use, and alcohol intake are among possible explanations for the elevation of SGPT.

Begin workup: A week or so off alcohol and all meds that might be contributing may return these to normal. If not, your physician will rule hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis (don't overlook this one), and maybe antitrypsin deficiency, autoimmune hepatitis, and/or wilson's in or out. If all ruled out, this may be the fatty liver of diabetes; a fitness-focused lifestyle may be a big help. Stay proactive. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
