Brief Answer: You are suffering from acute hepatitis. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX You are suffering from acute hepatitis.Your serum Bilirubin is increased and SGOT is also mildly increased. Acute hepatitis is due to five different types of virus and most of the cases are self limiting and only require supporting therapy. You need few more investigations like routine hemogram,Urine RE/ME,Urine for bile salt and bile pigment,Ultrasound of abdomen,Viral markers,Prothrombin time.
