My mothers sgpt does not go down even if she's taking medications. What tests does she need to have to determine the cause of this high sgpt level.

???: It evades me thinking what medicine is used to lower sgpt. If the cause of the rise of liver function is known then we can target the cause but there is no medicine that targets the sgpt. Talk to the doctor to find out the diagnosis and find out how that problem is being treated. The lowering of SGPT may not be a necessary solution and may have to stay a bit elevated. ...Read more

My sgpt level came to be 59. All other LFTs are normal and hepatitis tests are also negative. I have no symptom of any disease. Why sgpt is high?

Many things: Sad to say, doctors see mild elevations in theses liver function tests all the time, most of the time we never know why as when rechecked they normalize. But many things like recent alcohol exposure, trauma to the liver, supplements, medications (Tylenol (acetaminophen) in particular), excess body fat, and low grade viral infections all can cause rather asymptomatic liver test abnormalities. ...Read more
