Assalamualaikum. Sorry I want to ask, I am aris suffering from hepatitis b. finished yesterday from the laboratory check. the result from the laboratory looks like this: SGOT result is 31.2 unit U / L reference value u0026lt; 35, SGPT yield 44.1 U / L unit reference value u0026lt; 45. what that means. Thank you.
From the information you have conveyed, SGOT and SGPT tests are performed to provide an idea of the risk of decreased liver function due to causes of liver damage, such as hepatitis, tumors, tumor metastases, or possibly a blockage of the bile.
With the results of SGOT and SGPT tests that are within normal values, this indicates that there is no liver damage. This is indicated by the value of a more specific SGPT examination in examining liver damage. Therefore it is necessary to do other investigations related to evaluation of Hepatitis B diagnosis against the risk of liver damage. You can do this in direct consultation with the doctor who treats you, so that the doctor can carry out further tests for heatitis virus infection, either in the form of hepatitis B serology examination.
During the treatment and recovery period, you should follow the advice of your internal medicine doctor to help reduce the burden on the liver in carrying out its functions.
Some things you can do such as getting adequate rest, avoiding sleeping late at night, and maintaining your food consumption by consuming foods that are healthy and do not burden your liver function.
That is the information we can convey, also read the liver function examination.
