hi there, SGOT and SGPT are liver enzymes and show derangement when the liver function is compromised. If you have a history of moderate alcohol intake for a prolonged period of time that would explain the enzymes derangement and fatty changes in the liver. The small calculus in the kidney can be ignored if it is asymptomatic. You could start by cutting down on the alcohol intake and taking regular exercise and balanced diet with a plan for decreased carbohydrate and fat intake. Please visit your physician who will be able to prescribe some liver enzyme suppliments. At present the fatty liver is in reversible state of dispair but if left unattended it may not be able to salvage later. Take care and live healthy.
