Got Bilirubin, SGPT, SGOT test done. What do the results suggest? Why am I in pain?

Hi..I just got my Bilirubin/SGPT/ SGOT test done. My SGPT is 148 and SGOT is 156. My Bilirubin is 1.2 (Direct: 0.9 and indirect 0.3). I had Jaundice which lasted for 6 months (Since March 2012). Today i did a test almost after 1.5 months. My last bilirubin count was 3.4. Currently am not having any medicines. I had hepatitis E . Is there any area of concern with high SGPT/SGOT level? Any strict diet control? I am having home food. Doctors have asked me to start eating everything but no outside food. Infact they have asked me to apply ghee as well on chappatis. I am really worried..what to do and what not? I have suffered a lot in past 7 months. My bilirubin had reached 40. Kindly advise!

Hi, welcome to HCM.
firstly, you were suffering from a hepatitis which is an water borne disease. so, you have to avoid outside water. Take bottled water if needed. Avoid roadside foods. Take fruits and vegetables in adequate amount.
As you had Hepatitis E , the levels of SGPT, SGOT will remain elevated even after years.
So, dont take tension about the report.
Repeat the test after 6 months. It will definitely become to lower level.
