Question: My wife is 30 weeks pregnant and recently glucose test done and it was normal. Before glucose test, my wife had taken 75gms of glucose and reach diagnostic center. The diagnostic center staffs not allowed my wife to go for glucose test as she had not taken exact 75gms of glucose and also variance.
they called my wife next day and they have given exact 75gms glucose and she waited 2hours in the center after taken glucose.The glucose test was normal.all ok.

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.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

Hi, my dad feels a pain in his stomach where his doctor told him he may have an annurism. He also has a heart murmur. He just tested his blood glucose and it is high, even though he has not eaten in about 4 hours. Is he in any immediate danger of the annurism because of his heart murmur and high glucose level?
