SGPT also called as Alanine Transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme primarily associated with the liver. Significantly elevated levels of SGPT are predominantly suggestive of liver disorders, but can indicate several heart diseases, such as congestive heart failure too. SGPT, just like SGOT, is yet another important enzyme in amino acid metabolism and an important test to measure liver health. However, it’s a better marker for liver damage than SGOT, and said to be liver specific.
Reference range is multifactorial depending on age, gender and disease condition.
The normal levels of SGPT are in between 7 and 56 units per litre of serum.
A value above 200 mg/dl indicates diabetes or high blood sugar
