Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
hepatitis B positive since 2006?
you must have taken antiviral , I guess.
the SGPT, SGOT elevation is indicative of liver affection. what are other LFT parameters like?
since long affection can result in cirrhosis and sometimes liver cell cancer, you should take regular treatment and evaluation under a gasteroenterologist's guidance.
It can be transmitted via body fluid. so have to be careful.
take care and keep me posted on your progress.
thanks and good luck.
