Normal values for liver function tests SGOT is 0-35, SGPT is 4-36, ALP is 30-120, Bilirubin is 0.3-1.0, Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is 8-38. LDH is 45 - 90 U/L.
If you are worried about Alcoholic hepatitis, it resolves completely or improves greatly following 6-12 months of alcohol abstinence, and continued improvement may be observed for several years. There is a possibility that your enzymes may not return to absolute normal values if you get them checked within one month of alcohol abstinence.
Thanks for this, i had a recent blood test which was after having 11 days of abstinence and levels were alt 56 ast 48 serum gt 86.
Would i expect to see further improvements in a further 11 days? Making abstinence period of 3 weeks?
