Laboratory test results need to be assessed keeping in mind the complete clinical status of a patient.
In some cases though lab findings may report values above the reference range, as long as the patient is asymptomatic there is no need for any specific treatment.
Liver enzymes include aspartate aminotransferase (AST or SGOT) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT). These enzymes are normally contained within liver cells. If the liver is injured or damaged, the liver cells spill these enzymes into the blood, raising the enzyme levels in the blood and signaling liver disease.
ALT (also called alanine aminotransferase or SGPT) is found in the liver only. The normal range ââof ALT levels is between 5 IU/L to 60 IU/L.
In your case, if you dont have any signs or symptoms and all other tests are normal, then it is likely that your liver may be normal. And the current test results are clinically nonspecific, and you need not worry about it.
Just keep following up with your doctor and seek proper advice.
