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
To give you a good and valid answer I would need more information. But, in general these are relatively normal and common results and I would not raise a red flag yet. I would ask my patient if there any toxic things they are ingesting such as too much tylenol, (acetaminophen) iron or alcohol.
But this is nothing to lose sleep over yet. ...Read more

Fix this now: I'm very glad this was found and thankfully fixing this up will probably save your health. No alcohol for now; you are likely to be tested for hepatitis b and c, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis and wilson's; each is very treatable if diagnosed on time, lethal if missed. Or your enzymes may be up and liver fatty because it's time for a switch to an intensive aerobic fitness lifestyle. ...Read more
No: Look for the cause. This may be your wake-up that you need to drink less, or that your body's asking for more exercise (the most common nowadays), or you're allergic to some rx. It may also warn of hepatitis b, hepatitis c, wilson's, hemochromatosis or autoimmunity. Labs aren't things to treat, they warn of undiagnosed, treatable illness. ...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
