Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

SGPT mentioned above is not too high to cause any serious problems.That could be due to previous fatty meal if you had.

Since your BMI is more loosing weight , low fatty food and good exercise would suffice.There is no need to worry also you having family history of diabetes though a risk factor life style modification would help you much.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Enrique Molina's  Response
If your SGPT elevation is due to fat in the liver then the only way to reduce it is by diet and exercise. You should avoid alcohol as much as possible. Your ideal BMI should be around 20 to 25.
You will be at an increased risk of diabetes in the future given your strong family history so the best way to delay or avoid it is by taking care of yourself starting right now.
Make sure your doctor tested you for other conditions that can cause elevation of liver enzymes, such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, autoimmune liver disease, etc.
