What does a high level of SGBT mean?

Jul 20, 2008

My husband's SGBT has a results of 137 and his GGT is 214. How serious is that and what does that mean. We know he has hep C.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These lab tests are liver enzymes and their elevation indicates that the liver is inflamed as a result of the HCV infection. You need to consult with a liver specialist to determine the extent of HCV involvement in the liver and whether HCV treatment is indicated.
