Hi there,
High SGOT and SGPT is seen in liver diseases .Conditions like fatty liver, hepatitis infections, medications all can cause high enzyme levels. In fatty liver there is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. Fatty liver due to alcoholism is called Alcoholic fatty liver disease and the other one is Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which is due to obesity, diabetes and high triglyceride levels. Chronic alcoholism can cause alcoholic liver disease which includes fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis. These are all serious conditions and the person suffering from these should avoid alcohol intake. Lifestyle changes may be helpful. You should refrain from taking alcohol, as this will cause further injury to the liver. Hemoglobin A1c provides an average of your blood sugar control over a six to 12 week period and should be used in conjunction with home blood sugar monitoring for making adjustments in your diabetes medicines. Values between 5.7% and 6.4% indicate increased risk of diabetes though the reference range varies in every lab. Diabetes should be treated and control obesity and high triglyceride levels. Adopt lifestyle changes like weight reduction, exercise etc. Indulge in exercise daily and avoid fried fatty foods. It is best to have a frank discussion with your attending doctor and get your doubts clarified. Keep me posted.
Kind regards!
