I have high levels of triglycerid and ALT (sgpt) and AST (sgot). What does this mean?

Possibly fatty liver. Triglycerides are very long chains of repeated fatty acid molecules, that are intermediary products of fat and carbohydrate metabolism. They function as building blocks for various parts of the cell. When they are elevated, it may be genetics, diet, fat intake, or overweight condition all at play. Alt & ast are liver enzymes. In this case, the most likely meaning is fatty liver.

Is salmon omega 3 capsules useful in elevated sgpt, sgot, bilirubin's and triglyceride levels?

Don't treat labs. Omega-3's have been a massive disappointment in most areas when subjected to scientific testing. Most important is finding WHY these liver tests are up. If it's chronic hepatitis B or C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, or autoimmune hepatitis, you're going to die if you're not diagnosed & Rx'd. If this is non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, nothing will help as much as getting aerobically fit. Read more...

Does lower SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT) levels (10 and 14 respectively) means weaker liver function? What is the average number of these hormones in blood?

Not necessarily. Liver function is mainly looked at through total protein, albumin, international normalized ratio levels, which are proteins that the liver produces to help other parts of the body-if they are consistently low then it can suggest liver dysfunction or under functioning. AST and ALT are markers also, but not as specific for liver dysfunction as the above mentioned. . Read more...

Fatty liver disease. The high SGPT & Triglyceride level suggests either a dietary or genetic (or both) problem leading to fatty liver disease. (The liver gets replaced by fat). This can lead to liver cirrhosis & liver failure, for which there is no cure except transplant. Lowering the triglycerides (by gemfibrozil or fenofibrate, along with other meds) can help stave off liver failure. TTYD or use HealthTap Prime. GL. Read more...
