arrhythmia and high SGPT level

  Hi, my name is Raymond. I am a 35 year old chinese male.
  Recently i got episodes of arrhythmia 2 to 3 times a day lasting about 10 seconds each time.
  I can feel the rhythm so hard that it extends to the left upper arm.
  I have consulted my physician and have gone through a general body check.
  The results are normal except that SGPT level is very high ( 137 IU/L )
  The ultrasonography showed the liver and gall bladder are normal.
  From your professional opinion, is there any relationship between my symptom and the elevated level of SGPT.
  I am not taking any medication nor any alcohol at present.
  My blood test showed absence of hepatitis B antigen and antibody.
  The ECG at rest is normal as well.
  The arrhythmia usually occurs at evening or at night with some occasions at daytime.
  I would be grateful if you would reply as soon as possible
  Thank you very much
Dear Raymond,
Thank you for your question.  There is no known relationship between elevated liver enzymes and heart arrhythmias.  Are you taking any herbal supplements or medications?  Some of these will sometimes cause a bump in the liver enzymes.  Some people have small increases in liver tests with fasting.  
I hope you find this information useful.  Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only.  Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.  Please feel free to write back with additional questions.
