elevated SGPT & SGOT

Jul 28, 2005

My husband was recently diagnosed with Hep-C. he now has SGPT of 110 & SGOT of 48. we're trying to find ways & means to work on his Hep-C infection thru alternative methods (herbal) since we cannot afford the cost of interferon & ribavirin. should we worry that his SGPT & SGOT are at these rates? thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That SGPT level does not help determine the extent of liver damage cause by HCV.
