Description

SGPT Test (ALT Test)

SGPT Test – Alanine transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme found in the highest amounts in the liver and kidney. However, much smaller amounts of it are also found in the heart and muscles. Injury to the liver results in the substance’s release into the blood. ALT is measured to see if the liver is damaged or diseased. In healthy individuals, ALT levels in the blood are low.

When the liver is damaged, ALT is released into the bloodstream, which results in high ALT levels.

Why is the SGPT test advised?

The alanine aminotransferase diagnoses a liver disease, especially cirrhosis and hepatitis caused by alcohol, drugs, or viruses detect liver damage and analyses why jaundice was caused by a blood disorder or liver disease. It monitors the effects of cholesterol-lowering medicines and various other medicines that can damage the liver.

ALT can be advised as a single test or as part of a requirement with other tests, for individuals who are at an increased risk of liver disease. Some examples include:

  • Individuals with a history of known or exposure to hepatitis viruses
  • People who are heavy drinkers
  • Individuals with a family history of liver disease
  • Individuals who consume drugs that might occasionally damage the liver
  • People who are overweight and/or have diabetes
Common symptoms of high SGPT observed are:
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Jaundice
  • Dark urine, light-colored stool
  • Itching (pruritus)
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
What other tests may be advised along with the SGPT test?
  • Amylase: Amylase and lipase tests are used to detect pancreatitis. The tests measure the amount of these enzymes circulating in your bloodstream.
  • Anti Microsomal Antibody (AMA): An antithyroid microsomal antibody test is also called a thyroid peroxidase test. It measures antithyroid microsomal antibodies in your blood.
  • SGOT / AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase): The AST test measures the amount of AST in your blood. The test is also known as a serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase test.
