ALANINE TRANSAMINASE (SGPT) (THY)
The alanine aminotransferase (ALT) test is a blood test that checks for liver damage. Your doctor can use this test to find out if a disease, drug, or injury has damaged your liver.
This test measures the level of ALT in the bloodstream. Doctors might order it if a child has signs of a possible liver problem, such as jaundice (yellowish skin or eyes), dark pee, nausea, vomiting, or belly pain. It also might be done if a child is on medicine that makes high liver enzyme levels more likely.
