Having elevated SGPT and SGOT along with gall bladder stones. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
i have a query for you ... this is regarding my SGPT and SGOT values which are gigh
there are multiple stones...
so i was just curiour to know if the high SGPT/SGOT is because of yriglycerides or galltomes
so i just curious to know if the high SGPT/SGOT is because of tryiglycerides or gallstones
May I know your age and gender?
And the reason why the test was done?
my age is 29 Female
Are you there?
i was getting episodic pains in my upper abdomen once in a month or two... all the doctors which i consulted told it was a gas problem... but this time when i got the pain, it prolonged for 6 hours.. and then the doctor decider to get all the test done ..in the test we found that there were gallstones and high SGPT and SGOT and triglycerides
XXXXXXX I see your previous chat and we had a discussion about high SGPT and SGOT earlier.
yes .. i did... but that time i was unaware of the triglycerides
In the absence of viral hepatitis, the high SGPT and SGOT may be related to a general viral infection.
In addition triglyceride levels also can affect the levels.
the liver looks normal.. size is also normal is what report says
more over.. the doc this week said there is no medicine for gallstones.. and did precrible anything.. so was wondering how will it go
If the liver appears normal and hepatitis is ruled out,
there are multiple stones 2-3 mm each
Doctor didnt precrible anything for gall stones
Gall stones are not treated with medicine.
Surgical removal of gall bladder is done by few surgeons to prevent future gall stones
since gall stones can be a recurring problems.
ok...is this the only solution..
Let me answer this in a different way, XXXXXXX
The elevated liver enzyme suggest there is some liver inflammation - which is caused by less worrisome problems.
Like I said earlier, hepatitis virus is ruled out.
So is a structural problem of liver.
In the absence of the above 2 condition, liver enzymes generally reduce with time.
no there is no structural problem...the size is normal
this clearifies my doubt on....enzymes.. thankyou.. but the gallstones worry remains
Once the liver enzymes comes down.
you can opt to get the gall bladder removed
which is the treatment for multiple recurring gall stones.
You may repeat the liver enzymes say once every month or 3 months
as the levels improve consult a surgeon
for the needful.
Have you followed?
thanks for clarification

have a nice day

Bye for now.
