Understanding SGPT & SGOT in Bhubaneshwar


What is SGPT & SGOT in Bhubaneshwar?

An SGPT & SGOT test is done to assess how well your liver is functioning. It measures the amount of two most common liver enzymes, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT). This test may be performed if you experience symptoms suggesting liver damage, such as loss of appetite, pain and swelling in the belly, dark-colored urine, pale-colored stool, bruises, and the yellowing of the skin and eyes. An SGPT & SGOT can also be done as a part of liver function test to detect underlying liver diseases, like jaundice, hepatitis, cirrhosis, etc. Doctors advise this test to check the treatment response for liver problems or evaluate the side effects of medicines that adversely affect your liver health. 

What does SGPT & SGOT measure?

SGPT

An SGPT test measures the amount of ALT or SGPT enzyme in your blood. ALT is most abundantly found in the liver, but it 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 health of the liver and to detect liver-related problems such as hepatitis, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, or other liver disorders.

SGOT

An SGOT test measures the levels of serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), also known as aspartate aminotransferase (AST), an enzyme produced by the liver. SGOT is present in most body cells, most abundantly in the liver and heart. The primary function of this enzyme is to convert food into glycogen (a form of glucose), which is stored in the cells, primarily the liver. The body uses this glycogen to generate energy for various body functions.
