Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

Yes,Definitely your SGOT and SGPT is raised.
You have history of beer intake.It is not good for you at all.You are only 31 years old.
You should quit it immediately.Increased SGPT shows liver damage and it is due to beer in your case.
You need few further investigations so that your problem is clearly understood.
You need routine hemogram,RBS,RFT,LFT,Lipid profile,Ultrasound of abdomen.You need complete LFT like bilirubin and GGT level.GGT is specific for liver damage.

You can take tablet ursodeoxycholic acid 150 mg twice daily for 3 months.It will help in regeneration of liver cells.You should also do exercise and walking.

You can quit beer completely by strong determination and it is possible.

Hope i have answered your query.
Get well soon.
