Negative liver tests, taking ayurvedic treatment for thyroid. Liver problems?

My husband had his regular blood test done yesterday. Strangely, his liver tests turned out to be negative. The data is as below: LIVER PROFILE BILIRUBIN , TOTAL 0.6 mg/dL ALANINE AMINOTRANSFERASE ( SGPT ) H 122 U/L ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASE( SGOT ) H 64 U/L He also is undergoing ayurvedic treatment for thyroid. Can you please suggest the possible liver related problems? Or if he needs to undergo any further tests? Thanks and Regards.

Hi Shweta,

The SGPT and SGOT are elevated. it can be due to alcohol intake, viruses like hepatitis B or C or sometimes due to some medications. This is especially true for ayurvedic medications which can cause minor to severe damage to the liver. You need to get you husband tested for hepatitis B or C. Also he needs to avoid alcohol if he is taking it. You need to check with you doctor to see if the ayurvedic medication he is taking is potentially damaging to the liver.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
