SGPT Test Cost

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) test also known as Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) blood test, a liver function test that screens the level of ALT in the blood. ALT is released into the blood when there is liver damage and is an initial step in screening the liver for the same. A significant increase in the ALT levels helps the doctor to evaluate liver problems.

ALT serves as a potent marker for liver damage. ALT helps in the early detection of liver problems, although it cannot specify the amount of damage.

ALT test is carried out by collecting a blood sample through venipuncture. A small amount of blood is collected in a vial and it is then analysed. The drawing of blood takes a few minutes and analysis of the sample may take a few hours.

ALT is primarily found in liver and is present in higher amounts. Hence, it is more specific for liver damage than AST.

ALT blood test is often ordered as a routine test to evaluate the health of the liver and also if there are any signs or symptoms of liver damage. Elevated ALT levels are mostly due to liver diseases. Very high levels of ALT is due to hepatitis and also due to viral infections. Bile duct obstruction, heart attacks, acute hepatitis, viral infections, alcohol abuse and cirrhosis, all result in an extremely elevated level of ALT. Tumor or liver cancer, diabetes, pancreatitis etc. are also reasons that can cause elevation of the liver enzymes. Nausea, vomiting, constant tiredness, loss of appetite are some of the symptoms indicating there might be some problem with the liver.

The presence of ALT occurs in the bloodstream even before the first symptom of liver damage manifests itself. ALT test is then advised to evaluate the risk of potential liver damage. Predisposition to liver disease due to family history, alcohol abuse, obesity, diabetes, exposure to hepatitis virus etc. increase the risk of liver damage exponentially.

There is no need for extensive precautions to be taken. However, it is important for you to let your doctor know the prescription medications you may be taking. This is because, some medicines affect the liver in a harmful way and subsequently can also affect the results obtained. Avoid taking any over-the-counter medications a few days prior to the test. Staying hydrated helps preventing the felling of dizziness.

There is no risk involved with this test except for a minor bruising or bleeding but it fades away quickly. There might be a slight pain from venipuncture, but that can be avoided by staying relaxed during the procedure. ALT test is often done as a part of liver function tests called a liver panel which includes tests such as Alkaline Phosphatase test, AST test, Albumin and total protein test, Bilirubin test, and Lactate Dehydrogenase Test (LDH).

Q: What is SGPT?
A: SGPT (Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase) or Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme which is made in the liver. If liver cells are damaged, SGPT levels rapidly rise in the blood.
Q: Why is SGPT test required?
A: An SGPT test is a very reliable marker of liver damage. The doctor may order this test if you have been experiencing symptoms like nausea, vomiting, yellowness of eyes, abdominal pain, etc.
Q: How is SGPT test performed?
A: Blood drawn from a vein is needed for the procedure. The sample is further analyzed in a laboratory.
Q: What is the normal range of SGPT in the body?
A: The normal levels of SGPT fall in the range of 7 to 56 units/liter of serum.
Q: Is an SGPT test risky?
A: No. If all aseptic conditions are properly maintained, then an SGPT test is very safe. But the risk of needle-stick injury, minor infection, slow clotting is present.
