Brief Answer:
MILDLY ELEVATED SGPT IS NORMAL IN PREGNANCY

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Different labs have different levels of normal and abnormal.
In pregnancy, higher than normal levels of SGPT are considered abnormal, because of hormonal changes.
So please upload the exact lab report, as such, mildly elevated SGPT levels are not worrisome unless she is having symptoms like itching, yellowish urine, yellowish discolouration of mucous membranes etc.
So do not worry about her report, just upload it to me also.
The sugar levels as described are quite normal, so there is nothing to worry.
If the ultrasound is abnormal in any manner, upload that report also so that I can opine about it.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
