Hi Ivy,
How are you? Your blood chemistry results: sugar, uric acid, potassium, cholesterol and SGPT results were within normal levels. While the normal range of values for SGPT is from 7 to 56 units per liter of serum, it is recommended that the reference range for this particular laboratory be used since technique and protocols used by different laboratories are usually considered. SGOT and SGPT are sensitive indicators of liver damage or injury from different types of diseases. However,  higher-than-normal levels of these liver enzymes should not be automatically equated with liver diseases.  With regards to the increased TSH, it is best that you check with your doctor for proper management. It is also recommended that you discuss the results with your doctor for proper evaluation.Take care and do keep us posted.

thanks doc i'll keep you posted actually, regarding my sgpt my doctor told me that its slightly elevated but nothing to worry,he asked me if i drink so i said yes.he told me that might be the reason since its still on its normal range.he advise me not to stop or not to deprive myself in drinking but make it occasionally and in moderated consumption. I had my test last march when do you think is the best time to repeat the test? thank you
