Not significant in absence of clinical symptoms
Thanks for your query.
The normal level of ALT (SGPT) is 7-60 U/L
So, a value of 31 can be considered normal.
The normal level of AST (SGOT
) is 5-40 U/L
So, a value of 76 can be interpreted as mildly raised.
Kindly let us know about the following:
1. Is there any history of recent illness or liver
2. Any yellowish discoloration of eyes or passing dark urine?
3. Any trauma/ injury
to the muscles?
4. Habit of smoking
or alcohol consumption?
5. Any history of prolonged intake of medicines like paracetamol/ pain killers, known to cause damage to liver?
6. In your post, you have mentioned about history of high blood pressure
. If your blood pressure is not under control, then it may cause damage to the heart & result in increase in SGOT. Are there any cardiac symptoms like breathlessness, easy fatiguability or any episode of heart attack?
If your answer to the above mentioned questions is NO, then there is no need to worry.
In absence of any specific clinical symptoms, a mildly elevated level of AST (SGOT) has no significance.
Wishing you a Healthy Life.
