AST (SGOT) is 2494 U/L (normal range is <50); ALT (SGPT) is 2363 U/L (normal range is <50) and Bilirubin total is 4.51 mg/dl. How serious is he?
It depends: How does he FEEL? If this is simply acute hepatitis from a virus or a medication, he may end up fine. If it is from alcohol, then he is in serious danger -- if he recovers, there's still the behavior that caused this in the first place, itself deadly serious. If he is systemically sick and this is "shock liver", the treatment is that of the underlying illness. ...Read more
Low sgot of 11 normal at my lab 15-37 low sgpt of 17 lab normal range of 30-65. All other work ups normal. Is this dangerous? Life threatening?
My 12 year old daughter blood result of SGPT is 38 and SGOT 52 above normal range of 10-35 for SGPT and SGOT, is it alarming. Her weight is 173 poun?
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, from what you described, your daughter may have fatty liver, (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis - NASH). It would be prudent for her to lose weight, not easy, but essential. Do discuss it with her doctor.

My lab result shows ALT (sgpt) is 11 out of 3-60 range and AST (sgot) is 19 out of 3-50 range. Are these normal numbers? What could they mean?
Good for you: Like most folks, your values are at the low end of the reference range for both of these labs. The top of the range is set high as some ethnic groups tend to run higher than most other folks. ...Read more
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
Liver enzymes: Clincially we do not worry about mildly elevated liver enzymes. Not until they are 3 times normal do we need to investigate, as this can be very transient. Have them rechecked again in 3 months and check in with your PCP for advice. Think about medications or habits that may be contributing to this. ...Read more
Food not enough but: These are very high levels. You need to find out why your liver enzymes are so high- most likely you have hepatitis- if type a it is self-limited. It could be due to toxins (including alcohol) as well. A healthy diet may help but is probably not enough to get these normal. Eat lots of organic fruits and vegetables, avoid all alcohol, fried foods & gmo foods. Herbs & IV vit c drips may help too. ...Read more
I am 25 yrs of male. My sgot level is 28. And sgpt level is 45. Are my parameters normal or not. If not what disease I m having?
My sgpt is 79 and sgot is 48 u/l. How to bring these values to normal in 1 week. I have to go under medical examination next week.
No alcohol or meds: However, big fellow... It's more important to find why these are elevated. They may be a wake-up call you're drinking too much and/or are allergic to some medication you are taking. Or that you have hemochromatosis, hepatitis b, hepatitis c, wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, autoimmune hepatitis or aren't exercising enough. This knowledge could save your life. More important, isn't it? ...Read more
Subjective: Ultrasound is very user dependent for results. Gross abnormalites such as enlargement or mass could be ruled out. Cellular dysfurnctions are more difficult. The pattern in the liver such as increased echogenicity may mean fatty infiltration which can cause enzyme elevation. Sometimes cellular changes too minimal for detection. Enzyme elevations can be related to medications, inflammatino, etc. ...Read more
Normal labs: The lab results you mentioned are normal. We really need to know what we are looking for or suspecting when we order a certain lab work. Then we can clinically assess to come to a reasonable diagnosis. And what is the question? ...Read more
