Why would you want your ALT and AST liver enzymes to be "maitained"? They are indicators of what is going on in your body. It would be similar to wanting the pain from an tooth abscess to go away instead of treating the tooth decay. You want to get to the cause of the problem not mask the symptoms.
AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) are indicators of liver damage or injury from different types of disease. But higher-than-normal levels of these liver enzymes should not be automatically equated with liver disease. They may mean liver problems or they may not. For example, elevations of these enzymes can occur with muscle damage. The interpretation of elevated AST and ALT levels depends upon the entire medical evaluation of the patient. It is best done by doctors experienced in evaluating liver disease and muscle disease.
