Hello nur patchouli, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, what kind of hepatitis do you suffer from?
The term hepatitis describes inflammation of the liver. Inflammation of the liver can be caused by many things which are generally divided into 2, infectious and non-infectious hepatitis. Infectious hepatitis can be caused by hepatitis A, B, C, D, or E viruses. Non-infectious hepatitis can be caused by the use of alcohol, drugs, or exposure to certain toxins, autoimmune responses, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or hepatitis due to fatty liver. .
The type of hepatitis cannot be known only from the SGOT and SGPT examinations. From the examination of your SGOT and SGPT, which only increased slightly, it can't be concluded whether the disease you are suffering from is actually acute or chronic, it can't even be used to conclude whether the disease is from the liver or not, because basically SGOT and SGPT can also increase in adults. other diseases such as diseases that cause damage to the muscles. Moreover, the results of the SGOT and SGPT are the results of the examination 3 months ago which are no longer relevant when used today.
SGOT and SGPT laboratory results must be combined with clinical symptoms, physical examination, and other laboratory results (eg hepatitis panel if hepatitis virus infection is suspected). We recommend that you go directly to the doctor to find out more clearly the condition of your disease (if you have been diagnosed with hepatitis before).
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's clear enough
