Brief Answer: Increased SGPT indicates liver injury. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX laddi Thanks for writing to HCM Increased SGPT indicates liver injury.It is important to know your lipid profile. You may be suffering from dyslipidemia with fatty liver disease. Deposited fat can cause injury to the liver cells. You need proper clinical examination and few more investigations. Other investigations include routine hemogram,RBS,RFT,Lipid profile,Viral markers,Ultrasound of abdomen.Further investigations can be done if needed. You can take tablet Ursodeoxycholic acid 300 mg twice daily after food for three months.It helps in regeneration of damaged liver cells.Further need to continue drug depend upon response. You may also need hypolipidemic drugs if lipid profile is altered. Besides medicines your condition also need changing of life style and diet. You should quit alcohol/beer completely. You should increase your physical activity in the form of exercise,walking etc. You should avoid red meat,high fat milk products,fried and fatty food and should take lot of fibres and fruits in your diet.
