Hi, Welcome to HCM
Firstly Fatty liver i not a dangerous condition. It is the most common incidental finding found during Ultrasound scan of whole abdomen.
But the elevated GOT and SGPT indicates presence of some hepatocellular injury.
But in these conditions Billirubin levels are also becomes elevated. So, for total impression you have to give the other reports .
If all other are normal, then
1. Avoid rich diets,
2. Avoid alcohol.
3. take nutritional and balanced diet.
4. Consult with treating doctor for taking liver protective drugs.
5. Follow up the enzyme levels after 2 months.
