Question: I had a medical check up yesterday because of my hypertension. There was something that I forgot to ask for clarification from my doctor regarding the lab test result. My SGPT is 126. From what I understand, this has something to do with my liver. I'm 31 years old. But I don't drink alcohol. What does this SGPT result mean?
