SGPT 153 u/l after taking Godex DS and silymarin capsulues for 2 weeks. How to reduce SGPT?

How to reduce SGPT quickly?
First result was SGPT 157 u/l, I am now on a diet eating only oatmeal, cereal(coco crunch) and water. HBV test shows non-reactive.
I went to a doctor and she prescribed Godex DS(2x a day) and silymarin capsules(1x a day) for a month. And then a week past I went to test again to see if i was improving but test still shows 153 u/l.

Please help on how to lower sgpt or is it too early to tell(1 week of the 1 month i should be medicating). Need this for Pre-employment medical.

SGPT is a liver enzyme raised in the cases of liver damage.This test is done in association with other liver tests like serum bilirubin, SGOT, GGT etc.

There are plenty of reasons of the liver enzymes to be raised like

infections- hepatitis B, hepatitis c, and other hepatitis
other acquired liver disease
malformations in biliary tree

I do not think so you can just reduce your SGPT without knowing the exact cause of its increase,In case it is not going down get the other enzymes checked as well and go fro the ultrasound of liver to see the anatomy of liver and biliary tree.

There is no way to lower SGPT drastically. You need to be patient for atleast 4 weeks to get a remarkable change in the levels along with medication. You can do the following for better results:

1. Cut down Liquor and smoking
2. No heavy meals, fried stuff, or junk food.
3. go green, have plenty of fluids, fruits and simple food.
4. cut down spicy, heavy and processed dishes of meat/beef etc.
5. Have a couple of crushed garlic cloves with a cup of luke warm water once in a day.
6. start workouts/gymming/cycling/swimming etc.

You levels are considerably high but this level could be managed and brought into normal limits by putting into practice all the above suggestions.

You can also consult Homoeopathy, it is also quiet effective.

Wish you a speedy recovery to health.
