Blood test for liver: Alt (Sgpt) and Ast (Sgot) were very high, and Alkaline Phosphatase was a little high. Everything else normal. Should I worry?

It depends… ... On what the cause of the abnormal liver tests turns out to be. If your liver numbers are significantly elevated, then you should see a primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist to help sort it out. I would do this without delay. Good luck.
Yes. Need to get these checked. Do keep your appointments in order to diagnose the cause of your liver disease and to appropriate get treatment.
Worrying doesnt help. Follow up with the doctor and see what they have to say. A fatty liver can cause elevated liver enzymes.....be concerned,don't worry. .
Multiple causes. Need to see a doctor. Any type of hepatitis,other inflammatory diseases, medications,certain food & many more causes. Are you taking any meds?
Cause for concern. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, what were the actual levels of the enzymes? You may have hepatitis. If you drink alcohol, stop completely and test in 3-4 months. Elevated enzymes can also be due to medication, therefore it would be prudent to consult your doctor.

My last blood test results included these: albumin 3.9, total protein 7.0, alkaline phosphatase 165, ast/sgot 31, alt/sgpt 86, bilirubin, total 0.5, bilirubin, direct 0.2; any hint of a liver problem?

Tough to tell. The lab values presented here don't seem to be alarming. Each laboratory use somewhat different analytic method and so the range varies somewhat as well--so some levels maybe a bit high by one lab and ok by another, thus we need reference. Also, medication use, alcohol, drug and some acute illnesses can influence these values, thus these values alone don't mean much. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more...
More than a hint. Your alt/sgpt is way-high and unless you're having rhabdomyolysis, your liver cells are being damaged and leaking this enzyme. It doesn't matter that your alk phos is only slightly above reference range (that doesn't worry me) or that the other labs are okay. You need to find what's going on with your liver -- meds, need for more exercise, chronic hepatitis, or something else. Read more...

I did a liver profile test : alkaline phosphatase 47.1 u/l aspartate aminotransferase (sgot)39 u/l alanine transaminase (sgpt)53.7 u/l?

Get a follow-up. Expect these to be repeated iwth you off alcohol and any meds you don't truly need. There may be a hepatitis, iron overload, wilson's ; maybe autoimmue hepatitis workup in your future. You also list B12 ; vitamin d deficiency; i trust these are being managed ; the causes identified.

I'v long standing colitis. Done LFT. My bili is bit high. SGPT/Alkaline Phosphatase/GGT/ Pancreas-OK. SGOT bit high. Ultrasound - all OK but mild fatty liver. Lipid Prof & CBC-OK. No abd pain. Was 218lbs. Started home diet & lost 16 lbs in 4m.Is it PSC?

Continue the wt loss. Not sure what is PSC, but your obesity (I'm assuming obesity by your weight, but I don't have your height for confirmation) can cause your fatty liver which can cause your LFT abnormalities. Work with your primary clinician on your weight loss while continuing to monitor your LFTs. Hope that helps . Read more...

Test for PSC. PSC is less likely with a normal alkaline phos, but that is a non-specific measure. ERCP is the more sensitive testing for PSC, and will detect strictures or evidence of stricture in many instances. MRCP is less invasive, but may not be quite as good as ERCP. The approach to making a diagnosis of PSC is best done with guidance from your gastroenterologist. Read more...

My liver function tests results bilirubin total-4.35 sgot- 468 sgpt- 908 ggt- 132 alkaline phosphatase-175.8 anything serious, could this be jaundice?

See details. These results suggest significant liver disease and this must be evaluated immediately. Speak with the doctor who ordered the tests. Get screened for hepatitis and consider a referral to a GI specialist. Read more...
Good Hx essential. The first question to be resolved is whether the cholestasis results from intrahepatic or extrahepatic disease process, bearing in mind that several intrahepatic causes of cholestatic jaundice can mimic extrahepatic obstruction to varying degree. Further blood test, US Abd. CT Scan with good hist. will be needed for DX.
PBC, PSC, Drug induced hepatitis & many more should be r/o by GI ASAP. Read more...

Hello, I just had an annual blood work. Bilirubin total = 0.2 alkaline phosphatase = 99 Sgot = 42 Sgpt = 113 do I need to be worried? Thank you!

May be. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your liver enzymes are slightly elevated. It could be due to alcohol intake, being overweight, some medication you may be taking or hepatitis. It would be prudent to discuss this with the doctor who ordered the tests. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more...

My serum total bilirubin came at 1.3, AST (sgot) 13, ALT (SGPT) 09, Serum Alkaline Phosphatase 67, I am 23 year old male, explain my about this?

Gilbert's. Hi. It's most likely, Gilberts, a benign defect in bilirubin conjugation that needs no treatment. Measure conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin. In Gilbert's, unconjugated bili is increased. It's benign...no treatment needed. Read more...

My serum total bilirubin came at 1.3, AST (sgot) came at 13, ALT (SGPT) came at 09, Serum Alkaline Phosphatase came at 67, am I danger situation?

No. For the most part, your liver functions are normal, possibly a slightly elevated total bilirubin. Unless you have known liver disease, this elevation is probably benign and should be repeated before getting anything else done, including fractionating the total bilirubin into direct and indirect levels. This can be elevated during fasting or dehydration. Gilbert's syndrome can manifest as this. Read more...

I have alkaline phosphatase elevated (450u/l) as well as (sgpt), (sgot), and ama test is positive, age 37y (woman), have anaemia and low level of iron?

Sort this out. You need to be told straight-up whether you are going to be diagnosed with & treated for primary biliary cirrhosis. If you also have iron deficiency anemia, the cause needs to be found. I hope you are not a non-supplementing vegetarian & that a search for possible sources of blood loss is underway. Be proactive & insist on answers. Good luck. Read more...
