In this case, the most likely meaning is fatty liver. ...Read more

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

What is mean for SGPT that 80 high from normal 50? Kindly explain to me I'm worried.

Get worked up: If you have used alcohol and/or medications, your test will be repeated two weeks from now. If it's down, that's your warning. If not, you'll be checked for hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis and a few others. If all are normal, it may simlpy be your body's way of asking for more exercise. Best wishes. ...Read more
