Hi and thanks for contacting healthcaremagic
SGOT and SGPT are liver enzymes which are raised if there is an injury to the liver cells. This injury may occur because of a variety of causes like-
1) Infections like hepatitis A/B/C/E Dengue fever, typhoid, malaria and others
2) Alcohol, drugs
3) Metabolic causes like excess fat, iron or copper
4) Reduced blood supply or congestion.
As your protein profile is normal you are likely to have an acute hepatitis because of one of the above causes,
Addressing the cause corrects the enzyme abnormality over weeks, hence XXXXXXX a physician to localise the cause
