Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Elevation in transaminase levels up to 60 which is slightly elevated. It is significant once it is more than 3 times elevated. Presently do not worry get repeat SGOT and SGPT after 3 months.

Meanwhile if you are obese or overweight then do dieting and regular exercise at least 30 min/day and if you take alcohol then please avoid it.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
