Understanding SGPT in Asansol


What is SGPT in Asansol?

An SGPT test, also known as serum glutamate-pyruvate transaminase or alanine transaminase (ALT) test, measures the level of the ALT enzyme in the blood at an affordable price in Asansol with Tata 1mg labs. ALT is generally found inside liver cells but is released into the blood if your liver is damaged or inflamed.

An SGPT test is routinely done as part of a liver function test (LFT). However, your doctor may also suggest this test when you experience symptoms of liver disease such as appetite loss, stomach pain and swelling, dark-colored urine, vomiting, and yellowing of skin and eyes (jaundice).

What does SGPT measure?

An SGPT test measures the amount of ALT or SGPT enzyme in your blood. ALT is most abundantly found in the liver but is also present in smaller amounts in other organs like the kidneys, heart, and muscles. Its primary function is to convert food into energy. It also speeds up chemical reactions in the body. These chemical reactions include the production of bile and substances that help your blood clot, break down food and toxins, and fight off an infection.

Elevated levels of ALT in the blood may indicate liver damage or injury. When the liver cells are damaged, they release ALT into the bloodstream, causing an increase in ALT levels. Therefore, the SGPT/ALT test is primarily used to assess the liver's health and to detect liver-related problems such as hepatitis, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, or other liver disorders.
