Question
I have taken annual health checkup and my sgpt levels are 64 U/L. Some 1 years back I had undergone a ultrasound test and in reports it was found that my liver size has increased. I had undergone medicine that time, and it was fine. What can be the case of higher sgpt levels?

Hello

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that the normal recommended range of sgpt for an adult is 7 to 56 u/l. So according to that your levels are very slightly deranged and there is nothing to worry for.

The most important cause of this slightly increased levels is our daily dietary habits. Here I will list down few important dietary tips for you to follow with with your levels will become normal.

3. Avoid food rich in fat and high salt content.
