New serum ALT level is issued, are you within the recommended range?
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. Multiple studies have demonstrated that the presence of an elevated ALT level is associated with increased liver-related mortality.
New normal ALT level issued
The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) recently issued a new Practice Guideline that aims to offer a framework for physicians to approach patients with the common issue of abnormal liver chemistries. According to the new guideline, “A true healthy normal ALT level ranges from 29 to 33 IU/l for males, 19 to 25IU/l for females and levels above this should be assessed.”  Although ALT ULN ranges can vary between different labs, the current normal ALT level is usually considered to be under 45-50 IU/L, so the new recommended level has lowered quite significantly.
These new levels were set based on available literature correlating ALT levels and liver-related mortality.
Monitoring ALT level reduces risks
Over the past 10 years, evidence has shown that ALT levels higher than the defined thresholds were associated with greater liver-related mortality rates across the world. So it is best for us to keep a close eye on our ALT level, especially patients with liver diseases or those recently cured from hepatitis C.
Are there any ways to keep ALT normal?
Knowing the normal ALT level is one thing; what’s more important is to know how to normalise it. ALT level goes up when liver cells are damaged. There are many different causes for this injury, and one way to keep ALT normal is to identify and treat the cause. But if treating the cause is not possible, we highly recommend using YHK therapy.
YHK is a scientifically based liver support specially designed to normalise ALT level and improve liver health. Safety and efficiency are top priorities for YHK; made from natural ingredients with patented manufacturing methods, clinical data shows that YHK contains properties that can prevent fibrosis and inflammation in the liver, improving liver health and preventing liver cell damage.
