welcome to healthcare forum
The rise of SGPT /and SGOT indicates that your liver tissues are under stress. liver is the organ that detoxify every thing you eat goes directly from your intestine to liver. Thus any damage to your liver tissues either by drugs or any toxic material like alcohol nicotene or any infection either viral or bacterial can rise your SGPT / and SGOT level. But the good news is our body has the protective and healing mechanism ti rectify it automatically. So nothing to worry. Juat improve the life style and improve the food habits. add more natural fruits and leafy vegetables to her diet, avoid all junk, fast , oily, fried foods. Drink plenty of water. morning walk and yoga are advisable.
thank you
