How To Reduce SGPT And SGOT Levels In Homeopathy?
There are a number of investigations which are to be done when the patient is advised to go with the blood test. When a patient comes with any of gastrointestinal disease and to confirm the diagnosis, doctors advised going with the liver function test. With this liver function test, one can easily know about the normal functioning of the liver. This test includes many biochemical makers but most of important is SGOT which is also called as AST and SGPT called as ALT. When coming up with the ranges, they may vary from laboratory to laboratory depending upon the method they have adopted and the handling of the sample also.
For some people with various diseases, the range can come within the normal limits but that doesnâ€™t mean that the liver is healthy. There may be some pathology is being produced inside the liver. Same can be with a healthy person, the normal range can be varied besides the liver is healthy. A liver test can rarely specify you a diagnosis, rather it suggests you a group of diseases in which these biochemicalâ€™s can be increased and decreased. With the help of investigation and doctorâ€™s knowledge can one diagnose the disease of the person.
Liver function is mostly altered when a person suffers from jaundice. With serum bilirubin level, the SGOT and SGPT levels in jaundice are also altered from the normal range but SGPT and serum bilirubin can be enough to know the liver damage and this SGPT levels can lower in one week with the dietary factors. As in the initial stages, the levels are increased slightly high which can come normally with the treatment and dietary factor but as the disease progresses there may present the danger level of SGOT and SGPT which will not only produce harmful effects on the liver but also on other organs also.
For the patient who wants to take medicines without any side-effects to the body, they mostly prefer to go with Homoeopathy. Homoeopathy has many medicines which can bring back these biochemical makers to their normal range.
What Are SGOT And SGPT?
These are the biochemical makers of the liver which helps to know the dysfunction and derangement going in the liver. SGOT and SGPT are the enzymes which reflect the damage to the cells of the liver (hepatocytes). These are the sensitive indicators which let us know the liver cell injury and are very helpful in knowing the acute hepatocellular diseases like jaundice, hepatitis.
SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase) are not only found in liver but they are also present in cardiac muscles, skeletal muscles, kidneys, brain, pancreas, lungs, leukocytes and erythrocytes in an decreasing order of concentration. These enzymes are released in the blood when there is an increased amount of liver damage which causes the liver cell membrane to increase their permeability. Hence when the blood is taken for the test it shows the level.
SGOT - 8 to 45 units per litre of serum for both sexes
SGPT - 7 to 56 units per litre of serum for both sexes
If the range is slightly increased than medicine with proper diet management is enough for bringing back to normal. But if ignored then this can produce the danger level of SGOT and SGPT which will then require more attention as there can be very severe damage in the liver.
SGOT And SGPT Level in Jaundice
Jaundice can be easily diagnosed when the serum bilirubin level in the blood is more than 3mg/dl (50umol/L). Normal range may vary from 0.2 to 1.2mg/dl.
When a patient is having jaundice and is advised to go investigation that not only the serum bilirubin is increased, there is also change in the normal range of SGOT and SGPT levels in jaundice. It depends upon the type of jaundice which the patient is suffering.
Jaundice which is due to parenchymal liver disease there is increased in the range of both transaminases and there is also an increase in the level of other LFTâ€™s. Acute jaundice in which the level of SGOT is more the 1000U/L is suggestive of highly infectious disease of liver like hepatitis.
How To Reduce SGOT And SGPT Levels in Homoeopathy?
When it comes on Homoeopathy to treat with the diseases, it comes on mind whether it can cure or not. For those people asking this question is yes. There are more than 500 medicines and many more are still under proving which helps the diseases to cure permanently if the selection of the medicine is strictly on the basis of the principles of Homoeopathy. There are plenty of Homoeopathic medicines are present which can reduce SGOT and SGPT without any side-effects. Some of which have specific actions only on the liver and helps in promoting the functions. So here are the Homoeopathic medicines:-
For any of the liver complaints the first medicine which come in the mind is Chelidonium. It is a prominent liver remedy which covers many of the direct reflex symptoms of the diseased condition of the liver.

With dietary management and Homoeopathic medicines one can easily get lower SGPT level in one week but care is taken more, if these SGOT and SGPT exceeds the danger levels than there can be severe pathology may be present inside the gastrointestinal tract which can even lead to final stage and death can occur. So it is advised to consult your doctor as soon as possible when you started feel any discomfort in your body otherwise one has to face the circumstances in the future.
