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

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

 

With the help of YHK, normalising ALT level has never been easier.

We all know about the importance of maintaining the health of our liver because of the different possible liver diseases if we fail to do so, such as liver cancer and hepatitis. However, among all the liver problems there is one that is often neglected but brings equally harmful effects to our body, and that is non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).   What is Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?   Non-alcoholic Fatty

When someone went through hepatitis C treatment and achieved a successful SVR (sustained virologic response), it can be considered as cured. But liver protection and regular monitoring are still required depending on the condition of your liver at the time treatment ended. And here is why: For a starter, curing hepatitis C means that the viruses in the body is gone, and you can’t infect anyone else, but you could still get a new hepatitis C infection or other hepatit

The liver carries out essential functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making new blood and other vital nutrients. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function. Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver damage; it is often caused by chronic live
A:
Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build

You probably have already heard about the new antiviral hep C drug, which is effective but insanely expensive. It claims to have around 90% success rate, that’s why so many hepatitis C patients are dying for it even though it’s extremely costly. But apart from its expensive price tag, there is a bigger issue behind this new drug that not many people know about. Scientists and researchers have found an increased risk of extreme liver cancer related to this new drug after successful

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l
