Hello doctor,

For the past week, I have had symptoms of jaundice, so I went through some liver and jaundice tests, and tests came up with high levels of SGPT Or SGOT, and bilirubin is 15.3. Please help.



Welcome to

I read your query and can understand your concern.

First, high bilirubin, SGPT (serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase), and SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) are the markers of liver injury.

This can occur due to the following reasons -

1) Excess alcohol intake.

2) Consumption of toxic liver drugs like ayurvedic drugs with heavy metals and painkillers.

3) Hepatitis B, which is negative in your case.

4) Hepatitis C, get the anti-HCV test done if not done yet.

5) Autoimmune hepatitis. For this, you need to get an autoimmune hepatitis profile.

6) Wilson's disease.

Can you please elaborate on your symptoms so that your differential diagnosis can be narrowed down? Also, please tell me if you have any family history of a similar problem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and take care.
