Hello doctor,

Today I checked my liver function test. My SGOT is 40 (5 to 35), SGPT 55 (5 to 40), but when I searched online, the normal range is SGOT (5 to 40), SGPT (7 to 56). What to do? And the doctor asked me to take fibroscan. Actually fibroscan is three stage in fatty liver. Should I take fibroscan?



Welcome to

I just went through your symptoms and I also saw your laboratory investigation reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Your liver function test enzymes are very normal and you do not have to worry about it. The second thing is your hepatitis B surface antigen is reactive which means you are hepatitis B positive. At this point in time, what you have to do is go for a further evaluation with viral load and you will have to take care of hepatitis B treatment. You do not need to get fibroscan. You do not have to get it done at present. Instead, if you have an ultrasonogram or CT (computed tomography) scan of the whole abdomen that might be able to tell you if you have any underlying lesions in the liver.
