What Causes AST Levels To Return To Normal In CHD Patients?
Hello. My name is Irhen, (27 yrs). NWhy can AST levels in long-treated coronary heart patients be normal after 4 days if no additional infarction occurs? What factors caused this? Why is the SGOT level normal? What are the factors? Please answer. thanks.
In patients with coronary heart disease, investigations can help confirm the diagnosis of coronary heart disease and help evaluate the progress of improvement in the patient's condition, such as an EKG, cholesterol, blood sugar, BNP, and sometimes AST and ALT tests are also performed.
From the questions you raised regarding SGOT, SGOT is an enzyme found in red blood cells, liver, heart, pancreas, and kidneys. When there is damage to one of the organ systems or body systems, the SGPT will be released, so that the investigation will show the level of increase in AST levels from normal values. Therefore, as in the case of heart muscle damage due to a blocked blood vessel, the AST tends to increase in the first 6-10 hours, and remains at a high level until day 4.
The decrease in AST levels can be caused by the return of good tissue perfusion, no repeated damage to the heart muscle tissue, the acute phase of coronary disease can be handled. Therefore, the average SGOT value remained until day 4.
However, this condition needs to be discussed with the doctor who treats the patient because it is necessary to confirm the results of blood tests, the patient's condition, and the treatment given.
That is the information we can convey, also read enzyme in heart disease.
