Hello.Welcome.High SGPT means liver inflammation.You get the LIVER FUNCTION TESTS along with ultrasound abdomen done.If they are normal then you can be rest assured that liver is alright.If the cause of high level of SGPT,like alcohol,is removed then it becomes normal and there is no permanent damage to liver.Good luck.

Thanks for query,
It is less likely she will have permanent liver damage.
For confirmation go for SGOT,SGPT.
If this reports are normal then it indicates that her liver is fine.
Ok and bye.

SGPT is an enzyme secreted by liver. The value of which is useful to understand the functioning of liver. Altered levels suggests some problems with functioning of liver. The usual Blood tests to verify the condition of liver are 1)SGPT 2)SGOT 3)Serum. Billirubin direct and indirect 4) Alkaline phosphatase 5) Serum protiens, albumin and globulin. A ultrasound sonogram of the liver would verify the structural condition of liver.

hi,thanks for posting your query.First of all it is important to know why the level was raised.As SGPT can be raised many conditions and mainly in some infective diseases of liver.Transient increase does not lead to any problem.Please talk to your doctor and in case of any problem that she has please get it done again and go for ultrasound of liver and other liver function test to see function of liver.
wishing her good health.
