Doctor :   SGPT and SGOT are both enzymes produced by liver and bilary duct cells and it values are related to the functions of these cells.
Doctor :   These are elevated in conditions such as alcoholism, over weight, hypercholesterolemia, hepatitis, inflammation of the bile duct cells and so on.
Doctor :   Since you are known to consume alcohol, it can induce liver changes such as fatty liver that may have induced these high levels of enzymes.
User :   how can i gt these in limits,avoiding alcohol over a period is enough
Doctor :   Yes, the levels should come down, if you cut your alcohol intake and practise weight losing exercises.
User :   my ht. is 176cms and wt. 70 kg and i want to quit alcohol temporarily until i get this in limit
Doctor :   Persistence of alcohol intake can cause further changes in the liver which can lead to hepatitis, cirrhosis and so on which can be made out by further rise in the liver enzyme levels.
User :   is there any tabs
Doctor :   Your weight is good enough for your height, hence stopping the alcohol would make the levels come down.
Doctor :   Provided you restrict alcohol consumptions completely.
User :   after getting things in order,may i get vaccinated for hepatitis
Doctor :   Since the only treatment is restriction of alcohol, medical drugs are of no use, if you continue alcohol consumptions,
User :   ok so lifetime i have to quit
Doctor :   You can use syp aristozyme 1 tsp daily along with multivitamin to help in improving the condition.
Doctor :   However they can only help, if you restrict your alcohol consumptions.
