Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your SGOT and SGPT levels are not significantly elevated and are not of concern. The GGT and Bilirubin levels are high. The picture represents an unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia which could be due to possible blood cell damage due to infection which is also associated with cholestasis. It should clear out with proper antibiotic and fluid therapy.
