Hello, Thank you for the question.
Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in the liver. This enzyme is also found in small amounts in other people such as the heart and kidneys. SGPT examination is usually done in conjunction with the examination of serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT). SGOT is also an enzyme found in the liver and heart. Increased SGPT examination results are usually caused by disorders / problems in the liver or disorders in other organs that affect the liver, for example:
viral infections, such as hepatitis virus, Epstein Barr virus, fatty liver virus (fatty liver) side effects of excessive alcohol consumption side effects of infectious drugs / gallbladder stones It is advisable to advise your husband to consult a specialist in internal medicine first. The doctor will ask questions about your husband's health condition and examine your husband. The doctor will also perform other tests such as blood tests and ultrasound to find out the cause further. After knowing the cause, the doctor will determine the next treatment for your husband. In addition, advise your husband to consume nutritious food, exercise regularly, lose weight to achieve ideal weight, and avoid excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages.
