Thank you for your query.

Results of one abnormal enzyme study (ALT [SGPT]) does not reflect any liver problem. Liver function is assessed in conjunction with other investigations like bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, SGOT and SGPT. Hence you should not worry about only one abnormal report and that too which was done 4 years back.

In view of your son being overweight, getting dizzy if he does not eat, and tiredness you should get him examined and investigated to rule out various conditions. In light of his bed wetting with the other complaints I would like to exclude diabetes mellitus as a cause.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
