Welcome at JA.
The elevated level of SGPT is seen with diseases of liver,lungs,
kidney & other organs.
Does the elevated level mean you cannot get issurance?
The raised SGPT can be there due to hepatitis,or liver cirrhosis,this can alaso be raised with intake of alcohol.
The raised level shows that you are diseased & you are already under risk,
Well I drink , but my wife who took this test rarly does
this is the reason insurance company deny for insurance
So what should she do at this time?
She should have some other tests like cogulation profile including PT,INR,PLATLET COUNT &
SERUM BILIRUBIN,ALBUMIN LEVEL ,USG WHOLE ABDOMEN.
This will help in ruling out the status of her liver & cause of raised SGPT.
Hope this will help you.
What treatments would need to be done to lower the level or correct the situation?
In case it comes to be a liver infection then taking some treatments like liver supplements will help .
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.
I think there should not be any serious matter with your wife,so at this stage consulting to a physician will be better .
She should have complete blood investigations & check up to rule out all these.
Is this a major concern for her long term health? So this a treatable condition.? How worried should I be?
This should not be a major health concern ,but truly speaking this is not normal.
Early you wake up ,bet
ter treatment she will have.
Not what you mean by the earlier I wake up the better treatment she will have?
I mean she should get investigated completely without delay,this will help in ruling out any hidden disease.
So this is not likely to be cancer or something extremely serious? And she will see a doctor next week.
It does not looks to be cancer like thing because generally the levels are generally raised more in that case.
Yes,She should see her doctor as early as possible.
Hope this all will help you.
