    there are many reasons for elevated enzymes - the liver is but one of many - these enzymes are not even liver specific - however the liver is most often the culprit for sgpt - ( alt ) - further testing and developing a pattern is necessary - one test result does not a condition make - if a pattern of high results is found then a biopsy may be warranted to assess liver condition
