In the absence of alcohol,high SGPT is seen in patients who have elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, those who are overweight, and in diabetics. If other causes of liver disease are ruled out your liver condition is most likely NAFLD.

Do the following for three months and repeat the test.If it doesn't become all right.then other causes for high SGPT must be explored and you have to consult a gastroenterologist for that.
 Regular aerobic exercises for 40 minutes a day  
avoiding junk foods like maggie,noodles,pasta,pizza,white bread,burgers and colas.  
Consumption of green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits suited for diabetics.  
 Avoiding deep fried and fatty foods  
6.. Take super B complex vitamin along with 1000 mg VIT C,once a day
7.. Keep your weight in your required BMI range.  
As far as pain in left side of abdomen is concerned,it may be due to various reasons and you have to consult a physician for that.
