Investigation of liver function is usually recommended by a doctor if someone experiences symptoms and complaints related to liver / liver work abnormalities, such as liver inflammation, damage to most liver cells into connective tissue, problems in the gallbladder and ducts. Symptoms that appear are usually dark colored tea / urine, pale stool / putty, nausea, vomiting, weakness, jaundice, itching all over the body and diarrhea.
Liver function tests are also sometimes performed on mothers who are preparing to become pregnant, patients who are on medication for a long time and patients with impaired liver function who are on treatment.
An increase in SGOT and SGPT indicates damage to liver cells so that the enzyme is released into the blood.
You should consult again with an Internal Medicine Specialist. The doctor will conduct detailed medical questions and answers about your complaints, the use of drugs, supplements, herbal supplements, multivitamins and minerals consumed for a long time and the medical conditions that you have suffered before. Your doctor will also do a thorough physical examination and if needed other supporting examinations that support your medical evaluation such as albumin tests, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, CT scan / MRI of the abdomen.
Medical treatment will be adjusted to the cause and medical diagnosis found by the doctor.
