welcome to HealthcareMagic
The above report is showing almost normal values so no need to worry .As for itching it is a common problem which occurs in some females during pregnancy and is due to amount of bile released from the liver that is the reason doctor asked you to get done the LFT.Please consult your doctor she will see the report and prescribe the necessary medicines.

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I have done LFT which shows SGOT to be 137 and SGPT to be 225, though Alkaline Phosphatase shows normal range of 241. Other components like Bilirubin, Albumin and Globimin are all in normal ranges. I dont intake much fatty food and have no itching. I really worried about my baby. Will my baby be fine?

Recent questions on Bilirubin

doctor1 MD

3 Months before I was affected by jaundice. (Total bilirubin:2.3mg/dL direct 1.2mg/dL). As per a doctors advice, i am taking only Oil-less,Salt-less,mostly fat-less foods. I took only 7 days rest as i want to step into my first job(at starting state of jaundice). After that no bed rest, nearly 8hours/day i was sitting in-front of systems. Bilirubin level is going up and down for last 1 month. Now Bilirubin level is about 1.4mg/dL-Total(0.6mg/dL-Direct). In my testing report, it was mentioned that 1.1mg/dL -Total and 0.5mg/dL-Direct as normal. Is it true that it will take about 4.1/2 months to come to normal?. As medicine I am taking only LIV52 syrup only. How long it will take for bilirubin to come to normal? Now there is no disturbance in my body. I want to know whether i am in normal recovery or any problem with my bilirubin levels. My last 3 reports:
Total(mg/dL) Direct(mg/dL)
15-Oct 1.4 0.6
25-Sept 1.7 0.6
11-sept 1.9 0.5
24-Aug 2.0 0.7
As per Lab: <1.1mg/dL<0.5mg/dL as Normal
Suggest some foods that i can take without any problem.
