36 weeks pregnant mother

Question: My wife is in 9th month of pregnancy. Yesterday our doctor advised for Liver Function Test(LFT).. In LFT her SGPT is 207 & SGOT is 78 & Alkaline Phosphorus is 176.... Is anything to worry...

Answer: Her liver enzymes are higher than range. Does she have itching more at night on hands and feet? She may be suffering from obstetric cholestatis. If she has itching then it will be relieved by application of aloe vera or calamine based lotions. Meet your doctor immediately and ask about udiliv tabs. Ask your wife to maintain baby movement count daily and visit your doctor twice weekly for check up of heartbeat. Repeat LFT every week. If enzymes increase further, your doctor may advice you on early termination of pregnancy and you should follow your doctor's advice. Hope this information is useful to you.

Question: I am 36week pregnant in my liver function test sgpt sgot and alkaline phosphate values are high..what to do is there any risk for my baby?
Answer: Hello! Generally in such case the doctor waits till 37 weeks and once you are in 37th week might go for the delivery. This condition might effect the baby causing fetal distress, preterm delivery or still birth. Hence, make sure that you have plenty of water, and reduce oil, spicy food consumption. Anything which puts pressure on the liver is not good enough. Take care
