ALP, AST (SGOT), ALT(SGPT) level very high in my 2 years old son.
Jun 1, 2014

my 2 years old son was infected hep B from his mom since birth. Last month I took him to get the blood test for his liver functions. The result came out that his: Albumin, Serum is 4.3 g/dl. Reference Interval is 3.4-4.2 Alkaline phosphatasem is 322 IU/L. Reference Interval is 130-317. AST (SGOT) is 96 IU/L. Reference interval is 0-75 ALT (SGPT) is 188 IU/L. Reference interval is 0-29. AFP, Serum, Tumor Marker is 0.9 ng/ml. Reference interval is 0.0 - 8.3

I'm very worry for his liver. Should I take him to liver specialist to treat his liver since he only 2 years old?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, he should be seen by liver specialist.
