Is iron a reason in increased sgpt. My sgpt level is at 90. I take maximum 120 ml of liquor (scotch) in a week. Should it be avoided or how can I cure?

In brief: Avoid

Alcoholic liver disease can cause iron overload.
But primary iron overload syndromes need to be evaluated if iron saturation does not decrease woth abstinence.

If you are having a "transaminasitis" (high SGPT) workup, you need to be off alcohol.

In brief: SGPT

Recommend u stop the liquor for few weeks, then get re-tested for liver functions.
