Hello and hope you are doing well.

The raised SGPT levels may not be related to constipation. The SGPT levels are elevated in liver disorders. Besides this they are also elevated in conditions like muscle injury and sometimes due to medications. If you do not have symptoms of liver disease like jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever, I would advise you to wait for now and repeat the test after four weeks to see how the levels are progressing.

I would advise you to develop a lifestyle to fight constipation.Drink plenty of water. Regular meals with high fiber content like green leafy vegetables, plenty of fruits, lots of oral fluids and exercise will help relieve constipation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Normal values for SGOT is 0-35 and SGPT is 4-36. So the SGPT levels are raised. Hope you have retested and the levels have normalized.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
