What is ALT (SGPT), and how to lower it?

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.


What does high ALT indicate?

ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the concentration of ALT enzymes in the blood, we can determine the degree of liver damage. The higher ALT number indicates more severe damage to the liver. [1]


How can we lower ALT level?

High ALT or liver damage can be caused by various reasons, some of these common causes include: hepatitis B/C, fatty liver, NASH, alcoholic liver disease, medications, and heavy metals. The usual treatment for high ALT is to first determine the cause, and then remove it, e.g. to use anti-viral medications, go on a weight loss diet or stop drinking, etc. As the liver has good self-recovery ability, quite often when the cause is removed, it heals itself and ALT level lowers.


But in some cases, removing the cause might be difficult or even impossible. In these cases, the liver will require extra support to help its recovery, to reduce liver damage and to lower ALT level. Clinical data shows that YHK therapy is an effective solution to treat high ALT. With anti-inflammation and anti-fibrosis properties, YHK can lower and improve ALT level within 10-30 days. YHK offers fast liver recovery and protection for those who struggle to bring down ALT level. [2]


Why is normal ALT level crucial?

Having a small amount of ALT in the bloodstream is normal for healthy individuals. The normal values are around 10-40 units per litre. This range might vary according to different countries or laboratories, but the upper limit is usually between 35-45. [1]


If high ALT occurs for more than 3 months, it is considered as chronic liver disease, as the situation is likely to persist without treatment. Persistent high ALT level means long term liver damage, which is the main cause of liver fibrosis, cirrhosis and liver cancer.


Lowering ALT level and maintaining it within the normal range ensures liver health, prevents liver fibrosis and cirrhosis, and most importantly reduces the risk of liver cancer. If you are experiencing high ALT, and are interested in YHK therapy, you are welcome to contact our support team
