  • Alanine Aminotransferase ALT (SGPT)

    The liver helps in removal of the toxic waste and storing healthy nutrients that the body requires. Alanine aminotransferase also known as ALT is found in the liver and in smaller amounts in kidney, pancreas and heart muscles. It was formerly known as serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT). When the liver is diseased or damaged, ALT is released into the blood and this increases the level of ALT in the blood.

    Why is ALT done?

    The ALT test is normally done to check for liver damage and diseases like cirrhosis and hepatitis. Most of the liver diseases are usually caused by excessive consumption of drugs, alcohol and due to viruses. The test can also aid in evaluating if the jaundice was caused due to blood disorder or liver disease.

    What do the results indicate?

    The normal values might differ from lab to lab. Hence, you need to let your doctor evaluate your overall health based on this test along with other tests and other health factors. The normal value of ALT for males would be 10 – 40 units per litre (U/L) and for females it would range from 7 – 35 units per litre (U/L)
