I was asked to take the test, SGOT, S.Createnin, Blood picture etc. The other tests are normal but SGOT reading is 54. Doctor says that I have a fatty liver and suggested URSODEOXYCHOLIC ACID(150MG) twice a day. Please suggest.

Hi well come to HCM.
Your SGOT is definatly marginally not very significantcould be due to drugs,alcohol,
or some muscle injury,or hepatitis etc. To diagnose fatty liver only SGOT report will
not confirm diagnosis of fatty liver, you got to have USG of liver as well. Annd how come to diagnose bachak fatty liver comes in picture so first clear our confusion. How ever
drug prescribed for fatty liver is OK if you have it. Thanks
