Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thank you for your query. I am Dr. Rommstein, I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.

If this is 250 for sgot and sgpt then this is serious indicator of liver damage since SGOT and SGPT are sensitive indicators of liver injury from different types of diseases or conditions, and collectively they are termed liver tests or liver blood tests. Globulines are also produced in liver.

So the next step is to look for certain liver damage and most common cause is fatty liver disease. It should be confirmed by ultrasound.

Other causes are viral hepatitis,cirrhosis, medications, alcohol intake or autoimmune diseases. To verify exact cause, US, bilirubin levels and tumor markers should be additionaly done then appropriate treatment can be started.
I hope I have answered you query. If you have any further questions you can contact us in every time.
