The AST/SGOT blood test often included in liver function panels, measures the levels of this enzyme to evaluate liver health.

Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST/SGOT) Normal Levels

Normal values for AST can range from 10 to 40 units per liter of serum, but this range might slightly vary depending on the laboratory that analyzes the blood sample. It is essential to compare the results with the reference range provided by the laboratory.

Frequently Asked Questions

The AST/SGOT test is primarily used to evaluate liver function and to help diagnose liver diseases, such as hepatitis or liver cirrhosis. Additionally, it can be used to monitor the progress of liver disease and the effectiveness of treatments. The test is often performed as part of a liver panel, which includes other liver enzymes.

AST normal levels typically fall between 10 to 40 units per liter of serum, but this range can differ slightly based on the specific lab conducting the analysis. It's important to check the results against the lab's reference range.

While high AST levels can indicate potential health issues, low AST levels are generally not a cause for concern. AST is usually not used as a primary indicator for specific conditions when it is quiet. In most cases, medical professionals focus on elevated AST levels for diagnostic purposes.

If the aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT) level is high, it may indicate potential damage or stress to the liver, heart, or other tissues. Elevated SGOT levels are not specific to a particular condition, so further diagnostic tests are usually needed to identify the underlying cause.

A safe AST/SOGT level is usually below 40 units per liter (U/L) for adults.

To reduce Aspartate Aminotransferase levels, it is advisable to avoid alcohol, maintain a healthy weight, engage in regular exercise, and follow a balanced diet.

An aspartate aminotransferase level above 50 U/L for men and above 35 U/L for women is considered alarming and could suggest liver damage.

Signs of liver damage can include yellowing of the skin, stomach pain and bloating, tiredness, and dark urine.
