Treatment For High Sgpt
What type of treatment is given to patients with elevated levels of sgot, sgpt and alkaline phosphatase?
Liver enzymes: SGPT and SGOT are considered markers of liver function. Since many drugs are metabolized by the liver, but may also cause liver cell damage, these are routinely monitored when under treatment with drugs known to pose risk of liver damage. Follow-up with your doctor to see if the drug needs to be changed or dose adjusted. ...Read more

74yr old patient. Mvr done 2006, ejection fraction 40%. Diagnosed with hep c and liver cirohsis, genotype 1, sgot 169, sgpt 97. What I best treatment?
Tough situation: Is your background asian? If so, it is likely you have a favorable genetic background that makes interferon work really well to eliminate hepatitis c. But it can be very hard to tolerate in older patients with heart issues. And it depends on how advanced the cirrhosis is. I would probably wait for sofosbuvir, although approval may take a while. Talk to your doc and follow the news in the us fda. ...Read more
My 7 years old daughter Marjan was taking velosafe syrup 6 ml each time, three times a day and brufen 4 ml at every six hours for her swollen neck posterior lymph nodes during treatment doctor advised some tests like cbc crp sgpt infectious mono and sgpt
Lymph nodes: Hello SBaldwin. I am unable to check proper dosages of the meds not knowing her weight but I recommend continuing with the current treatment and labs. It looks like your doctor wants to cover any current bacterial infection and check for other causes to include viruses that linger for a while before resolving. For future consults, my direct link is: healthtap. Com/vanessanealmd key code PNYTKV. ...Read more
Find cause: As a pathologist, I always tell folks to look at the person more than the labs. High SGPT is hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's, or drug toxicity until proven otherwise. Usually it is proved otherwise, but we need to rule these out. Once done, easy on the alcohol and hit the gym hard and the lifestyle-related causes of high SGPT (the most common ones) will be history and you'll feel better. ...Read more
Elevated liver funct: I can't say there is a cure for elevated liver functions, but we can treat the condition. First of all we need to find out the cause. You need to see your physician for a comprehensive history and physical exam, history of exposure to toxin, infections, drug history, diet history. You may need to have a liver US and maybe a fallow up liver CT. ...Read more
My father is having high sgpt and sgot level please let me know what can be the causes and what can be the cure?
Not okay: It's a warning. It may be nothing more than your liver asking for you to go get more exercise. You may be sensitive to ibuprofen and took some. It may be a warning of smoldering hepatitis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's, hemochromatosis, or medication allergy that's waiting to kill you if untreated. Your physician knows the workup. Best wishes. ...Read more
This is serious: Most folks run 20 or under and the reference range top is probably 40. Listen, friend. You'll have this repeated after two week off medication and alcohol, if appropriate. If it's still up, you'll get a workup for several deadly-if-missed, easy-enough-to treat illnesses (hep B/C, hemochromatosis, WIlson's, autimmunity). It may simply be your body's way of asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...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

To need to repeat: I already answered your question.Get a more detailed answer ›
Labs:liver ("alt [sgpt]") is "high" (43).Otherwise healthy. 1st, what could cause that? 2nd, what might a person want to do about that? P.S. Don't drink.
Multiple reasons: Very mild elevations in ALT and AST frequently have no obvious cause, & upon repeating tests, have returned to normal. Liver tests that remain elevated or climb can do so because of meds (careful w acetaminophen; many meds contain it so easy to accidentally OD), nutritional supplements (some are toxic to liver), fatty liver (can be related to obesity or alcohol), viruses, & too many others to list. ...Read more
I have an sgpt of 124 and slightly high fasting insulin. I don't have hepatitis. I took a course of augmenten and iboprufen 2 weeks ago. Had iboprufen.?
Lab data: A single lab value without a full history and physical exam and assessment of all other labs would be necessary to help you. If you have had labs done, why not ask the doctor who ordered them? They should be following up any abnormal values. ...Read more
Seek cause: It's not the SGPT that's going to hurt you, it's whatever is making the SGPT high. Your physicain will take you through the workup. If a few weeks off meds and alcohol doesn't normalize things, and you turn out not to have hepatitis b/c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, autoimmune disease or one of the others, perhaps all you need is to get back into serious physical fitness. ...Read more
