Test Details & Preparation


  • Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) test is done to screen for liver damage or to help diagnose liver disease.

  • Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) test is performed when a doctor thinks that you have symptoms of a liver disorder.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm for a Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) test.

  • No test preparation is needed for a Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase (SGPT) test.

  • Normally, levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in the blood are low.

  • Very high levels of ALT (more than 10 times normal) are usually due to acute hepatitis, sometimes due to a viral infection. In acute hepatitis, ALT levels usually stay high for about 1-2 months but can take as long as 3-6 months to return to normal.

  • ALT levels are usually not as high in chronic hepatitis, often less than 4 times normal. In this case, ALT levels often vary between normal and slightly increased, so the test may be ordered frequently to see if there is a pattern.
