HI.......dear user...,
welcome to HCM...,
I gone through your complaint...,
Gum bleeding and weakness are common in Dengue fever.....,
Liver and kidney also involved...,
SGOT and SGPT are chemicals made by Liver cells...,
When liver is inflammed ...these chemicals leaked in to the serum...,
Thus,in turn elevate the levels .....
common causes are 1) Alcoholic hepatitis
2) Hepatitis B and C........
3) Dengue fever...
hence I am p;eased to U will be seing concerned speciality--Gastro-enterologist '''
and follow accordingly....o.k wish you best of luck...,
