Thanks for the query. SGPT can be raised not only in liver failure but also in Diabetes.
Regarding SGOT, it is 53, which is just above the normal higher limit. This value is of no significance. It is even raised in Chronic alchoholics.

Hepatitis E is a self limiting disease. Mild fatty liver can occur due to Alchohol, Diabetes, Hypertension, Drugs like methotrexate, Malnutrition etc. If the causative factor is controlled, the fatty liver gets subsided.

Please get a latest Ultrasound abdomen and post it here.

I will be able to guide you better after that. If you have any further queries, I will be available to clarify.

Wish you good health
