Sgpt ALT level at 39, could you please advise if this level is high or what measures are in place to bring this to normal conditions.
Sounds normal: This is either normal or very close to normal depending upon your lab. In either case it is not elevated enough to pay any attention to unless you have serious signs and symptoms of liver disease. Ast and alt are not "managed" to any goal. Simply avoid liver toxins such as excessive alcohol, and certain medications such as Methotrexate and acetaminophen. ...Read more

You may need to have a liver US and maybe a fallow up liver CT. ...Read more

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

Workup: If two weeks off med and alcohol doesn't drop them to normal, you should be screened for hepatitis b and c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, and autoimmune hepatitis.
