Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your your query.
The high SGPT and SGOT could be possibly due to fatty liver disease. An ultrasound scan of the abdomen may be done for confirmation.
For treatment, you need to reduce your weight as your obese which can cause fatty liver disease. You have stop drinking alcohol( if you have the habit of drinking).
Triglyceride levels also be reduced. Avoid fatty food, increase your physical activity and take medications to decrease its level. Consult your physician for prescription.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
The most likely cause is fatty liver. But other causes like HBV and HCV infection also should be ruled out.

I hope that answers your question.

My son woke up Saturday and his urine had blood in it, the color of koolaid, his gums were bleeding and he had blood spots and bruises allover his legs. He went to the Emergency Room and they took blood test. His platelets were at 3000 so they admitted him to I C U. The gave him 10 units of platelets and steroids, and it raised him to 12000 by that evening. They took ultra sound of his spleen and kidney and it looked ok. They tested him for HIV and Hepatitis C and he tested negative. They then on Sunday gave him 7 more units of platelets and more steroids. By Monday morning his platelet count was 3800. They wanted to send him home, but he refused , telling them he wanted to know what was wrong with him. They didn't do anything for him till 6 pm Monday night , they put him on more steroids and said they would check him in the morning. Should I get a second opinion and take him to another hospital?
