Serum Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase (SGOT) is an enzyme that is normally found in the liver and heart. SGOT is also called as aspartate aminotransferase (AST). Elevated levels of SGOT are found in the blood when the liver cells are damaged (e.g. viral hepatitis) or when there is exertion on the heart muscles (e.g. heart attack).
SGOT is one of the important enzymes in amino acid metabolism and a SGOT test is a tool to measure liver health.
SGOT is usually used as a Liver Function Test; i.e to detect liver damage. SGOT is almost always ordered along with SGPT. Symptoms of a liver disorder usually include weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, abdominal swelling, pain, jaundice etc.
SGOT test is also ordered for people who are at high risk of liver damage. These people do not exhibit any symptoms but may be at risk or may already suffer from an underlying condition.
People with obesity, diabetes are at high risk for impaired liver function. Heavy drinkers, hepatitis or sometimes even medications may lead to a liver disorder.
