SGPT and SGOT are signs of liver inflammation. Get tested for viral makers- HbsAg and anti HCV. Keep of the good habit of alcohol abstinence and the liver inflammation would subside. If you are overweight you need to loose some weight as well. T. UDILIV 300mg twice daily would help too... donot worry too much about lab values... as long as you are healthy and living a healthy lifestyle, lab values dont mean much.
