HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here if the value of SGPT is 5000 which is questionable of course, but it is high enough with the history of alcohol consumption then I would say that this could be a indication of alcoholic cirrhosis, hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.

Hi! I have health concern regarding my lab test results which is my SGPT is high than normal 110. Is there an effective remedy aside from taking livolin forte or essentiale forte? They said that one of the causes of having high SGPT result is that of taking a lowering drug for cholesterol, like atorvastatin. Thank you for taking time reading my email.

Hi, I am a 35 yr old male and recently during a full physical, my doctor found that I have hypothyroid and has prescribed 25mcg of synthyroid. After having it for two weeks I have started getting frequent headaches, bad stomach, chest discomfort. Hence I stopped the medicine. Now the symptoms are persistant and my neck lymph nodes have started hurting as well. Do I need to seek emergency help? Should I go for a second opinion before I go on a long term treatment of synthyroid?
