High SGPT and SGOT

Jan 17, 2005

I recently got lab test results that gave an SGOT level of 143 and SGPT of 309. I have Hep C, but this was my first blood test in the past few years. Are these levels particularly high? And can you tell me if someone can have more than one genotype of the Hepatitis C virus?

Thank You, Tim

Response from Dr. Holodniy

They are elevated, but not extremely high and have a consistent pattern of HCV infection. Yes you can have infection with more than one genotype.
