How are you? What are the symptoms present and what other diagnostic tests were done? Elevated liver enzymes, including sgpt may indicate inflammation or damage to cells in the liver. In most cases, liver enzyme levels are only mildly and temporarily elevated and do not signal a chronic, serious liver problem. If there is a considerable increase, it is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Factors such as your symptoms, medical history and results of other tests are important considerations also. On the other hand, low triglyceride levels may be due to low fat diet, hyperthyroidism, malnutrition, or malbsorption syndrome, a condition in which the small intestine does not absorb fats well. Take care and do keep us posted.
