Do I need to fast before getting a SGOT or SGPT

Hi,
      Fasting is not required to get an estimate of SGOT and SGPT. SGPT is normally found largely in the liver and more specific to liver damage, while SGOT is present in liver, heart, muscle, kidney and brain.
The normal levels of SGPT are 7-56U/L and SGOT are 5-40U/L.Elevated levels of SGPT and SGOT are found in hepatitis, cirrhosis, over dosage of acetaminophen, shock etc. Hope this helps. Do write to us for further queries on this. Best.
