Hi welcome to HCM. You say you got your blood tests done and everything is normal except SGPT-145 and SGOT? 114. Well these are enzymes in the liver and they are raised in any condition where liver is affected.
Do you drink alcohol regularly
Are you on any regular medication
Have you taken antibiotics or any other medications recently
Have you had an attack of fever recently
Have you eaten anything unhygienic recently
Have you recieved blood products/a drip or injection recently
All these could be causes for the raised liver enzymes.
Please get an abdominal sonography to have a look at your liver and also do blood tests to type the kind of hepatitis(hepatic involvement) you have. Hope I have answered your query fully. Regards.
