Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

SGOT value of 170 is definitely significant and with SGPT in the range of 24, SGOT/SGPT ration seems to be very high.

Such high ratio is common with alcohol induced liver injury or an underlying growth.

It is important that you are evaluated further. An ultrasound examination or CT/MRI scan is necessary as the next line of management. The imaging test will give us more clues regarding the true nature of the problem.

Do you consume alcohol? - If yes, you need to cut down on it.

Hope this answers your query.
