Hello and welcome to HCM
Regarding to liver function test and electrolytes, the interpretation is:
1. SGOT is marginally raised, normal level is less than $) IU/L
2. SGPT is also increased, normal level is less than 40 IU/L
3. GGT is also marginally increased, normal level is less than 70 IU/L

These values indicate a slight liver cell damage and mild obstruction of the biliary tract.
Get few other tests related to liver- bilirubin (direct, indirect and total), alkaline phosphatase and serum preteins. These investigations will provide some more information.
An ultrasound abdomen should be done to know the status of liver, biliary tract and kidney.

The electrolyte level is normal. Sodium and chloride are within normal limits.

Consuming a lot of betelnut is deleterious to health.
It is known to cause heart attack, stroke, hypertension, COPD and cancer.
Tobacco is known to cause of various organs and organ systems like oral cavity, larynx, oropharanyx, esophagus, lungs, kidney, bladder, stomach, pancreas etc.
So, consumption of tobacco in any form is harmful.
If you develop any lesion in the oral cavity, report it promptly to your doctor.
It is better that you stop consuming betel nut or go for tobacco less betel nut.

Thanks and take care
