Dear all.
I am type 1 diabetic, 33-M, for last 7 years. I recently went through lab tests. My HBA1C came as 7.9. More alarming thing however was to get high values of SGOT & SGPT. These are liver related numbers. I got SGOT reading 5 times higher than max limit of normal range. SGPT reading was 8 times higher that max limit of normal range. These numberss were perfectly normal 6 months ago. They are also Called Asparate Aminotransferase(SGOT) and Alanine Transaminase (SGPT).

Just wanted to know your thoughts before I see liver expert.

Hi @ran.peace

Welcome to the forum - I don't know much about these tests or what the results might indicate I'm afraid. Do you know how long you need to wait before you can see the liver consultant?

Are you on any drugs for anything eg high BP or cholesterol or something ? - cos there are some fairly common drugs which can affect liver function test results.
