Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

ESR is a non-specific test and can rise in any infection as an acute phase reactant. Neglect it.

SGOT rise is also very very minimal and is not worrisome. >40 is usually abnormal.
It may rise in many viral illnesses. Its importance is to be considered along with other tests and clinical picture altogether.

Presently see no worry. Keep a watch on jaundice.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!
