Among the most sensitive and widely used of these liver enzymes are the aminotransferases. They include aspartate aminotransferase (AST or SGOT) and Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT). These enzymes are normally contained within liver cells. If the liver is injured, the liver cells spill the enzymes into blood, raising the enzyme levels in the blood and signaling the liver damage.
The normal range of values for ALT (SGPT) is from 7 to 56 units per liter of serum.
The interpretation of elevated AST and ALT levels depends upon the whole clinical picture and so it is best done by doctors experienced in evaluating liver disease.When the liver is damaged, the enzyme is released into the blood where it shows up at a high level. Your doctor had advised you to stop drinking as alcohol can aggravate your liver disease. Essentiale is prescribed to treat fatty degeneration of the liver, cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis.Strenuous exercise can also raise your SGPT level. So if you had just swam 1-2km before you had your blood drawn, your SGPT could come out quite high, independent of your liver condition.The next step is for your doctor to find out what kind of liver disease you have.
