Fatty liver is commonly associated with alcohol or metabolic syndrome (diabetes, hypertension, obesity and dyslipidemia), but can also be due to other causes.
  Fatty liver is a common condition. No drug has been approved for its treatment. The best approach is to do the following:
Quit alcohol completely.
Maintain your weight at normal level, in required range of your BMI
Regular exercise (e.g., brisk walk for 1/2 hr, 4-5 times a week)
Maintain your blood glucose and lipid levels within the normal range.
take a super B complex vitamin having 800 mg VIT E and 1000 mg VIT C
take green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits
Avoid junk foods like maggie,pasta,burgers,pizzas,colas etc.
Avoid sweets and deep fried items.

Thanks for posting your query.
With all normal investigations except grade II fatty liver, Raised SGPT is more likely related with fats accumulated in liver.
Heptral contains ademethionine and also helps in correction of deranged liver enzymes level.
You should quit alcohol intake.
You should keep in touch with your treating doctor and should go for regular check up of liver function test.
Untreated fatty liver may cause hepatitis and in severe case, may lead to cirrhosis.
Take care,

Grade 2 fatty liver may be due to Alchohol intake.It will become normal if you completely stop Alchohol as it is reversible.

Regarding SGPT,it is not tested alone routinely.Other Values regarding Liver function tests(LFT) like SGOT,Alkaline phosphatase etc should also be mentioned to come to a proper conclusion.

It is raised after Physical exercise,Medication,Infections like hepatitis,Infectious mononucleosis etc.

If you are fit and healthy,nothing to worry.If other Values in LFT are also elevated,then you have to be thoroughly investigated.

If only SGPT is elevated for prolonged periods,then it does not indicate a disease.

Wish you good health.

Welcome to HCM,
You have chronic high level of liver enzymes,but 10 years is long period, I your history still you take alcohol ,my request would be to stop alcohol completely.
Fatty liver is due to alcohol or NAFLD so take care of diet and Lipid levels with regular exercise.
Your doctor has given hepato protective drugs,please take them and also test for lipid profile and if required discuss about Oral bile acid therapy like UDCA.
Take up healthy life style take fresh fruits and also some yoga and meditation also ensure 7 hours sleep daily.
ademetionine which you are taking should help you and hope you recovers fast.
Please take care
Good Luck.
