User:but the high SGPt and SGOT is bothering me
Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:Elevated liver enzyme especially SGPT suggest there is some inflammation happening within the hepatobiliary system i.e. liver, gall bladder and bile duct.
Doctor:It is most likely that the gall stones are inducing some irritation and inflammation.
Doctor:However your doctor needs to perform few other viral markers to rule out other causes.
Doctor:Viral hepatitis needs to be ruled out most importantly.
Doctor:So get back to your gastroenterologist when he returns back.
Doctor:And there is no real need to be panicked.
Doctor:It is most likely all due to the gall stones.
