It is frightening to see that high number, but keep in mind that any virus can affect the liver as well. She probably has a viral gastroenteritis
, which is also affecting the liver causing inflammation and therefore abnormal liver enzymes. She definitely needs to get a follow up test in a few weeks to make sure these test returns back to normal. Otherwise further evaluation will be needed.
If she becomes jaundiced (yellow eyes) take her immediately to the emergency department as this could be a sign of liver failure
. Do not be alarmed, she is not in liver failure. I usually get concerned when the SGOT
/ SGPT goes above 500 - 1000.
