Welcome to The normal GPT usually range for adults in most labs is 0 to 35 units per liter (U/L). The normal range may vary slightly from lab to lab.(please see the lab reading for normal).Levels are higher if you have hepatitis,liver damage from alcohol,liver failure from drugs.This part of the liver tests are only one part of a larger picture that takes into account your medical history and current health. Sometimes a test needs to be repeated to check the first result. Since he has hepatitis it is this which is causing the elevated levels.They should come done once hepatitis settles .
