My ALT. WAS 65: AST. 30:ALP 62 I have been taking Diclofenac 75mg twice a day and have also noticed a rise in my blood pressure and a weight gain of 7 lbs in one month. I have alot of osteoarthritis flare ups and my muscles seem to ache all over. My doctor has suggested for me to stop taking the drug immediately. I take tramadol 4 times daily to help with the pain.

I have had the hepatitis C virus for over 30 years and been doing a natural destruction of it. In 2005 the viral count was 26 million parts in my blood I have done intravenous ozone but since 2005 just been using therapeutic grade oils internally, topically and diffusing. The AST/SGOT is high this year 60 which concerns me. The virus is down to 13,700 which is great.

It is said that the exact levels of AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) cannot be used to determine the degree of liver disease or predict the future. But SGPT was the only test my doctor requires me to have every 6 months to monitor my medical situation. I have a hepatitis B for 8 years now. Already done Hepatitis B profile and Hepatitis B DNA. So far all the results are fine. My doctor said that I have the virus but it has nothing to do with my body.

All of my blood work was within normal limits. My alt was normal too. The only test that was slightly high was sgot which was 120. I exercise 7 days a week and am healthy otherwise.

Not sure how to actually write it...but...SGOT And SGPT test results were: PT=150 and OT=80. My doctor wants to wait a month to see if it will go down, but we are talking about a 24 year old male with history of testicular cancer (surgical removal and chemo) with 6 month regular check ups post treatment. Still in remission.

Just got a call from my doctors office and my liver blood test came back "slightly elevated". My ast51 and alt43. I asked if we could rerun the test in 3mo. and he said "not necessary". I have to get the test every 6mo. because I am on a statin drug. I'm sure he doesn't suspect that I am a heavy drinker of 4-5 glasses of wine per day and have been doing so for 25yrs. I have not been totally honest with him on that because I don't look the type. I'm scared, but addicted.
