Explanation Of The Results Of The SGPT Laboratory Examination?
Hi, I want to ask. A few days ago I did a medical check up. The result thank God is good. However, my SGPT is 12. I’m searching on google if the SGPT value is too low it’s not good. What is the impact if you are too busy? Thank you.
SGPT / serum glutamic pyvuric transaminase is one of the liver function tests, and is often done with the SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) test. In addition to SGOT and SGPT, liver function tests can also be done with other tests such as albumin, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, and total protein tests.
Usually in the results of laboratory tests listed normal values / reference values. In general, the normal value of SGPT is 0-35 u/L. Please note that each laboratory reference value may vary slightly. Therefore you can see the reference value in your examination results and compare it with your results.
The more visible SGPT value is if there is an 8-10x increase in SGPT compared to normal. The condition of rapidly increasing SGPT values can indicate the presence of hepatitis, fatty liver, bile obstruction, liver failure, and excessive alcohol consumption. But keep in mind also that laboratory tests cannot stand alone. The results of laboratory tests must be combined with the results of the history and physical examination to draw conclusions and diagnoses. Therefore, if from the results of laboratory tests there are abnormal values, you should consult directly with the doctor on duty so that it can be evaluated further.
For now you don't need to worry, the SGPT 12 value is still within normal limits. Some tips you can do to maintain a healthy liver:
