Liver Health Infered from blood tests

May 19, 2002

Blood tests indicated that several enzymes that may be indicative of liver health are within the normal range (GGT, SGOT, SGPT). But the range starts with zero and goes to a value 40. My question is - do values near the middle or upper end of the normal range likely indicate a less healthy liver than values near zero? Or are you generally better to be in the middle of the range?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It doesn't matter where in the normal range these values are.
