SGOT Test Cost

SGOT or Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) test is a blood test that scans for any damage to the liver. AST or SGOT (serum glutmatic-oxaloacetic transaminase) is an enzyme produced in higher amount by liver. It is also made by other organs like kidneys, heart and brain in smaller amounts.

A small amount of blood sample is often collected and AST levels are estimated. Damage to liver cells causes AST to leak into the bloodstream, thereby elevating its level. Doctors recommend this test to assess the damage, if any, and to monitor the treatment that is carried out.

To perform SGOT test, blood sample is collected from a vein in the patient's arm by tying an elastic band tightly to the arm. Blood is drawn and collected into a small vial and is then analysed. Only a few hours are required for the sample to process.

This test also evaluates the condition of liver in the people already at risk for liver damage. Since SGOT is found in several other organs like heart, kidneys, muscles and brain, damage to any of these organs can lead to an elevated SGOT in the blood. SGOT levels increase during acute myocardial infarction or if there is any injury to the muscles. A rapid increase and decrease in the SGOT and SGPT levels could indicate the obstruction of bile duct due to stone. Over consumption of alcohol also damages the liver, thus elevating SGOT levels. SGOT levels also rise during hepatitis infection, liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.

AST is less specific than ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase) due to the fact that AST is also produced by other organs while ALT is mainly found in liver. So, if the levels of only AST are elevated, it could be due to damage to any other organs. To be sure, doctors often recommend a test to estimate ALT at the same time. If both the enzymes are present in higher amount, there is definite damage to the liver. Depending on the test results, other tests such as Bilirubin test, glucose tests, and platelet count test may also be ordered along with SGOT.

A few precautions need to be taken before this test. Stay hydrated and avoid taking any over-the-counter medications prior to the test. Relax during the procedure. It will prevent the muscles from tensing and will make blood drawing easier. Also, let your doctor know if you take any medications before the test so the doctor can take them into account when the results arrive.

SGOT analysis does not have severe risks but there can be a minor risk of bleeding and bruising where the blood was drawn from and fainting, but they tend to get better on their own.

Q: How is SGOT test performed?
A: A tiny amount of blood is taken from a vein in the arm using a needle and syringe. It is sent to the library for further investigation.
Q: What is the normal range of SGOT in the body?
A: Males: 10 to 40 units/L Females: 9 to 32 units/L
Q: What do abnormal SGOT levels indicate?
A: High levels of SGOT are seen in – hepatitis, liver cancer, blockage of bile ducts and cirrhosis.
