Serum Glautamic Oxalocetic Transminase or otherwise known as AST is a certain type of enzyme that is found in the liver as well as in other organs such as the kidney, heart, pancreas and muscles.
The normal adult range for this enzyme is 0-42 U/L and the ideal adult rating is 21. Then there is Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase or known in short terms as ALT. The normal adult range of this enzyme found in the liver is 0-48 U/L and the Optimal Adult Reading is 24. A sharp increase in this enzyme is believed to be due to alcoholism, kidney infection and chemical pollutants.
There is also something termed GGT or Gamma Glutamyl Transpeptidase for which the Normal adult range is 0-45 U/L in females and normally 0-65 U/L in males.
AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) are usually really sensitive indicators that will signify signs of liver damage or injury from different types of disease. Yet it must be highlighted that higher-than-normal levels of these liver enzymes should not be automatically seen as the same as liver disease.
Increases in these particular elevations of these enzymes can occur with damaged muscles. The clarification of elevated AST and ALT levels is dependent upon the entire clinical evaluation of a person, so it is best done by doctors who are experienced in assessing liver disease and muscle disease.
Furthermore, the exact levels of these enzymes do not compare well with the extent of liver damage or the particular outlook, hence the precise levels of AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) cannot be used to determine accurately the degree of liver disease in the system.
