Hi
Thanks for the query

Your SGPT is high than normal which should be taken serious. There are several reason for raised SGPT.

You also have boderlline raised cholesterol level which may also be a cause for it but there are some other serious causes like hepatitis which may be viral or autoimmune hepatitis.

It is important to have your check up from medical specialist and have detailed screening for hepatitis and ultrasound of liver.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks
Regards
