Brief Answer:
Increase in SGOT and SGPT suggest inflammation in liver

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

I can understand your concerns.

I have gone through the reports you have uploaded which shows that there is increase in SGOT and SGPT which implies that there is inflammation in liver. It may be due to alcohol intake.

However you still need to investigate for other causes for elevation of transaminase (SGOT and SGPT) levels. So I will suggest you to visit a Gastroenterologist for physical examination and tests like Hepatitis B and C virus, Serum ceruloplasmin for XXXXXXX disease, ANA and SMA for autoimmune disease, Lipid profile and Ultrasound abdomen to see for liver echotexture

Among medications
1. Do regular exercise
2. Low fat diet
3. Avoid alcohol
4. tablet Ursodeoxycholic acid and Vitamin E

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
