levels indicated by you are almost normal except a moderate high SGPT level. Did you have any jaundice in the recent past and are recovering from it now ?. What about your appetite and any vomit sensation. If not, do not worry. Repeat GPT test after a fortnight and still high visit a physician with an ultrasound abdomen. Do not take alcohol and animal foods. Avoid fat and oil for some time
