Dr. Gaurav Gupta

In my liver test SGPT is 42 and GAMMA GT is 57 more than normal range

Female | 35

Since your SGPT and Gamma GT levels showed higher values, your liver test result is fine, but slightly elevated. It may be a sign of the disease process that is manifesting itself in the form of liver damage or inflammation. Consult with a hepatologist is important. They can propose the right therapeutic methods which suits your situation best.

Recent I had an accident in that accident my liver raptured present I use medicines to cure not eat everything.can I eat non veg after how many days

Male | 21

I would suggest refraining from nonvegetarian foods until your liver has 100% recovered from the rupture. While recovering, it is also important to eat a balanced and healthy diet that will help in the liver’s recovery. Talk to your doctor for guidelines
