Hi thanks for contacting healthcare magic.
Noted you have elevated sgpt and you are on treatment with drugs for pneumonia since 2 month...
So yes you can have drug induce liver affection.....

Meanwhile for few days take low fat diet.
Fruits taken more like papaiya , grapes etc.
Green leafy beg taken more....
Avoid excess exercise for few days....

If still after one month it is elevated then USG abdomen with viral market study , CRP and CBC done for further work up....

Take care...
