Thanks for posting your query.

You have mildly raised levels of SGOT and SGPT with focal fat deposition in the liver. These findings are suggestive of fatty liver.

Fatty liver usually happens due to consumption of alcohol as well as sedentary lifestyle.

You need to restrict your alcohol intake (if you are taking any) and do some regular exercise like brisk walking for 45 min-1 hour daily. “Ursodeoxychiloic acid” (UDCA) is supposed to help in reducing the fatty liver. I suggest you to consult a gastroenterologist and get it prescribed.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish you good health.

Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
