Liver function tests such as SGPT, SGOT, serum alkaline phosphatase
, Australia antigen, globulin and albumin are few of the markers of the liver function and its ailments.
These tests are performed for three main reasons:
To assist in differentiating whether the jaundice can be treated in a medical conservative way, for example in case of viral hepatitis
, or it requires surgical treatment
, as in case of obstructive jaundice
due to gall bladder stones
he normal range of SGPT is from 20-40 u/l.
Some of the causes of high ALT SGPT are:
Liver inflammation (hepatitis A, B, C, Infectious mononeuceosis, acute viral fever, ALCOHOL, pancreatic disorder).
Injury to the muscles, as in accidents.
, congestive heart failure.
Acute kidney failure.
Certain drugs, like cocaine.
Drugs for reducing cholesterol etc
i think the treatment he is taking is very good so you should wait for the result SGPT will come down with this treatment
