SGPT, SGOT

Posted by

Both my wife and I have recently had high results for SGOT and SGPT. I have had two tests, both around 110 for SGPT (0-50 normal) and 60 for SGOT (0-37 normal). My wife has had three tests, the first and third in the same range as mine (110 SGPT, 60 SGOT) and the middle test around 220 SGPT, 110 SGOT. We have both tested negative for Hepatitus A, B, C. We are not heavy drinkers, and since our first tests we have not been drinking at all. We have also been limiting our intake of fatty foods, white flour, and white sugar. My wife does not have a gall bladder. I am very concerned, since we both seem to be having this issue concurrently, that their is something viral causing it. However, as I said before, we have both tested negative for Hepatitus A, B, C. How alarmed should we be, and does anyone have any ideas what might be going on? I have an appointment with a specialist, but it is not for a month, and in the meantime I am very alarmed.

Could your water be causing both you and your wife to have high levels of SGPT & SGOT? It's just a thought!!!!

We're on city water, so if it is the water, the whole community may be suffering. We have been drinking a lot more water since finding out we have elevated levels. Is there a large difference between tap water and distilled water as far as the liver is concerned?

Yeah, you are right, if you are on city water, then the whole community would have that problem. I don't know if there is a difference between tap water and distilled water.
Where both of you have high levels, it must be coming from the same source, it's just a matter of pin pointing it. Keep me posted!

Hi, Pat.

These ancient and outmoded tests are "liver death tests". What you need are "liver function tests". See the liver archives.

This means, most likely, that your liver detoxification processes are being overwhelmed by something in your environment. You need a Clinical Ecologist (See the glossary or search engine as to how to find one in your area. Listen to Kimberly for a likely source of these chemicals.

If you did not see the Bill Moyers' expose` of the chemical industry, this last Monday, you really need to get a copy of the broadcast (PBS at 9-10:30 PM).

Let us know what you learn and how you do.

Walt

Rowan, you had better write your post again as a "new post". Dr. Stoll may not see this one as it looks as if you are responding to Pat's post.
