Thanks for your query.

Normal value of SGPT in Pregnancy Trimester Three: 2 to 25 U/L or 0.03 to 0.42 ┬Ákat/L.
Your value 41 is higher than normal.
Mild to moderate ALT elevations may be associated with preeclampsia, , cholestasis, mononucleosis, abuse of alcohol, fatty liver, medication use.
You need to repeat your tests after 2 weeks.
Keep checking your blood pressure.
Refer immediately if you experience headache, epigastric pain and blurring of vision.
Hope this helps.
