Causes of high SGPT level and its diagnosis?

What is Higher Level of SGPT?

SGPT exists predominantly in the liver and leaks into the bloodstream when produced in excess. The SGPT normal range is about 7 to 56 units per liter of blood serum. Thus, very high level of SGPT in the blood can be an indication of damage or problems related to the liver. Certain diseases like cirrhosis and hepatitis raise the blood serum SGPT levels, so do specific medications including statin used to lower cholesterol.

What Causes High SGPT?

There are many conditions and diseases, which can result in increased SGPT level.

  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Acute viral hepatitis A and B
  • Celiac disease
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • Obesity
  • Hepatitis C
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis)
  • Dermatomyositis

Symptoms of High SGPT Level:

The high SGPT level symptoms include -

  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Leg swelling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Excessive bleeding or bruising
  • Jaundice

If you find these warning signs, you need to immediately consult your doctor and undergo SGPT blood test which will help you know whether your SGPT level is normal.

To reduce the SGPT level, diet modifications are needed. Your daily diet should consist of at least one fruit containing vitamin D. Alternatively, you can simply stand out in the sunlight for at least 20 minutes per day to get vitamin D. Couple it with some exercises that will help you stay healthy.

It is always recommended to have a regular whole body checkup with your doctor. The signs and symptoms of high SGPT level may not be noticeable immediately and hence, it is always better to have a preventive approach rather than taking action after the high-level findings. You can get the SGPT blood test done in a renowned hospital where it is a part of preventive health checkups.
