[IP] RE: insulin-pumpers-digest V5 #515

Original Message
There are a couple of items I don't fully understand. Perhaps someone could
explain them and their significance?

BUN - normal range: 7 - 18 mg/dl
Creatinine - normal range: 0.8-1.3 mg/dl
SGOT (AST) - normal range: 15-37 u/l
SGPT (ALT) - normal range: 30-65 u/l
- ----------------------------------------------------------

SGOT and SGPT are often used to keep an eye on liver function when taking
certain medications. I get these test done regularly because I am taking
Zocor for a cholesterol problem.
