I'm a 30yr old male, hadn't been in for a check-up in a couple years. Went a few weeks ago and had blood work done. First test came back with an SGPT level of 90. Not familiar with SGPT so I googled it and saw that alcohol use and certain medications
can elevate the enzyme levels. I had the blood taken on a Saturday morning and had been out drinking the previous Thursday night. Anyway, doctor recommended I abstain from alcohol for a couple weeks then get blood taken again. After about 1.5 weeks, had
blood taken again and SGPT went down to 83, which the nurse said was significant, but still high. I see that the higher end of the "standard" range is 63. I guess I'm just worried, more than anything, about what this could signify. Nurse said hepatitis
screen came back negative. I am not a heavy drinker at all. I will drink on the weekends and have my share. I guess over the last few months I've increased just a bit, but I definitely didn't think it was excessive. I'm your typical social drinker. Could
this be why? I wonder if there's anyone out there that has experienced this and has any advice or comments. Doctor recommended I have an ultrasound of my liver done. I've been fairly healthy my whole life with no real problems. I am overweight and read
that a "fatty liver" can be a cause. But hearing "liver" and "ultrasound" and all this other stuff just makes me worried being fairly young.
