On supplements containing beta-lanine and alpha-ketoglutarate. What can SGPT ALT tell about liver?

hi, i am 28 years old and i workout and take pre-workout , in short N.O-xplode is the product s name but i was only using this after my blood test. But before my blood test, i was using a product containing 1,3- dimethylamylamine which is a vasoconstrictor. I stopped it when my BP rose up, from 120/80 to maintaining at 150/90 right now. When I got my blood test result, SGPT+ ALT = 70, but my total cholesterol and triglycerides were low. LDL and HDL are normal though. My problem is what does the SGPT+ALT tell about my liver s status? And how come I am on a hypertensive state right now after just a few weeks of sipping the product with 1,3-dimethylamylamine? Can this be fixed? I am worried much more on my blood pressure.

Thanks for asking.

SGOT and SGPT or ALT tell us about the status of the liver injury, in cases of the liver damage the enzymes gets increased.

In cases of acute damage to liver, they can rise many folds.

Get yourself assessed with the liver markers including the scans for the liver status to get an idea about the extent of injury to the liver.
