[Health Channel/Comprehensive Report] Lian Mingyue, the national treasure of Gezai Opera, was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis last year and underwent liver replacement surgery last month. Unexpectedly, his condition took a turn for the worse and finally passed away yesterday (16th) due to hydrops in the heart. He was 70 years old. Gastroenterologist Zhang Zhenrong pointed out that the liver is a silent organ. Even if the so-called "liver index" GOT and GPT are normal, it does not mean that there is no problem with the liver. It is best to undergo a complete liver examination, including: abdominal ultrasound examination, liver B Viral surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus antibody (Anti-HCV), fetal protein, and biliary tract enzymes (r-GT, ALK-P).
Zhang Zhenrong stated in his book "Eating Ten Thousand Different Things" that GOT and GPT, commonly known as "liver index", are correctly called "indicators of liver damage". , the characteristics of these two enzymes are not the same, GOT exists in not only liver cells, but also in cardiac muscle, skeletal muscle and red blood cells; GPT mainly exists in liver cells.
Therefore, if the GPT value is abnormally high, liver inflammation should be highly suspected; if the GOT value is high, in addition to possible liver inflammation, myocardial or skeletal muscle problems should also be ruled out.

Zhang Zhenrong shared that he once met a patient who brought a blood test report showing abnormal liver index GOT and GPT, and asked, "The report shows a slight abnormality, so there should be no problem with the liver." He explained that even if it is only a slight abnormality, it still needs to be referred Only other values and tests can be used to judge, especially for patients with mild liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, the liver inflammation index and fetal protein index may be within the normal range, and they are asymptomatic.
Zhang Zhenrong suggested that the complete liver examination should be done again, and if there is a genetic history in the family, it should be more cautious.
Inspection items include: abdominal ultrasonography, hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus antibody (Anti-HCV), fetal protein, and biliary tract enzymes (r-GT, ALK-P), these tests can exclude Whether there are other liver diseases, such as liver B, C, liver cancer, alcoholic liver, fatty liver, cirrhosis, etc. can be excluded.
Physician Zhang Zhenrong said that even if the "liver index" GOT and GPT are normal, it does not mean that there is no problem with the liver. It is recommended to undergo a complete liver examination, including abdominal ultrasound examination.
