|HIGH SGPT LEVELS AFTER ENTERIC FEVER
Dec 21, 2008
Dear Doctor, My brother is suffering from Diabetes Inspidis since 3 years and on the treatment (Minirin - Desmopressin 10 mcg/ Spray). Furthermore, 2 weeks before he had enteric fever too. After recovery his doctor suggested for blood test and in test, he found high levels of SGPT (which is 80). Now in this context, please advise me about how to lower down the elevated SGPT levels and is there treatment other available for Diabetes Inspidis? I will be highly grateful for your advice.
Response from Dr. McGovern
Since I am an infectious disease physician, I can only advise you that the liver function tests should improve over time. Elevated SGPT is commonly found in enteric fever and his liver function tests are only mildly elevated...
