Dr.tiwari :

Hello,


 

Dr.tiwari :

Welcome at JA.


 

Dr.tiwari :

The elevated level of SGPT is seen with diseases of liver,lungs,


 

Dr.tiwari :

kidney & other organs.


 

Customer:

Does the elevated level mean you cannot get issurance?


 

Dr.tiwari :

The raised SGPT can be there due to hepatitis,or liver cirrhosis,this can alaso be raised with intake of alcohol.


 

Dr.tiwari :

The raised level shows that you are diseased & you are already under risk,


 

Customer:

Well I drink , but my wife who took this test rarly does


 

Dr.tiwari :

this is the reason insurance company deny for insurance


.

Customer:

So what should she do at this time?


 

Dr.tiwari :

She should have some other tests like cogulation profile including PT,INR,PLATLET COUNT &


 

Dr.tiwari :

SERUM BILIRUBIN,ALBUMIN LEVEL ,USG WHOLE ABDOMEN.


 

Dr.tiwari :

This will help in ruling out the status of her liver & cause of raised SGPT.


 

Dr.tiwari :

Hope this will help you.


 

Customer:

What treatments would need to be done to lower the level or correct the situation?


 

Dr.tiwari :

In case it comes to be a liver infection then taking some treatments like liver supplements will help .


 

Dr.tiwari :

There are some immunoglobulins preparations which can be helpful,but if it has taken the chronic course then the treatment is to prevent the complications.


 

Dr.tiwari :

I think there should not be any serious matter with your wife,so at this stage consulting to a physician will be better .


 

Dr.tiwari :

She should have complete blood investigations & check up to rule out all these.


 

Customer:

Is this a major concern for her long term health? So this a treatable condition.? How worried should I be?


 

Dr.tiwari :

This should not be a major health concern ,but truly speaking this is not normal.


 

Dr.tiwari :

Early you wake up ,bet


ter treatment she will have.

Customer:

Not what you mean by the earlier I wake up the better treatment she will have?


 

Dr.tiwari :

I mean she should get investigated completely without delay,this will help in ruling out any hidden disease.


 

Customer:

So this is not likely to be cancer or something extremely serious? And she will see a doctor next week.


 

Dr.tiwari :

It does not looks to be cancer like thing because generally the levels are generally raised more in that case.


 

Dr.tiwari :

Yes,She should see her doctor as early as possible.


 

Dr.tiwari :

Hope this all will help you.


 

Dr.tiwari :

If you are satisfied with my answer then please rate me good or excellent service.

Ok so we will just schedule the appointment with the doctor and go from there. Is a copy of the conversation going to be emailed or do I have to print this out to show her? Thank you
