HIGH SGOT/PT
Nov 12, 2009

During blood test I found my SGOPT and Pt high around 58-70, I had medicine and now it is normal around 28-30. I take alcohal 3-4 drinks, twice in week. Should is stop to take alcohaol totally.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would get testing for hepatitis B and C if you are at risk.

I would probably keep your alcohol intake to three drinks or less.

If you are overweight, have diabetes or cholesterol problems, your mild liver function test abnormalities may be related to fatty liver.
