LFT showed elevated SGOT and SGPT, history of drug abuse. What treatment should be taken?

Sir, I am 35 years old. I underwent a liver function test yesterday and found out that my SGOT and SGPT results are elevated i.e. 47.20 (5-45) and 58.87 (5-45) respectively. All other counts were within the standard range given in the report. I have had a history of drug abuse and have never maintained any routine. I want to find out what other test should be done in order to ascertain the exact course of treatment for these high levels of SGOT and SGPT levels. I do not consume any drugs now a days.

The tests show mild impairment. No cause for concern. You need not do anything for the time being - except of course avoid drugs and alcohol. Just repeat the tests in a fortnight.
It is good that you don't consume drugs now. Great indeed...Keep it up . If there is any hesitancy, you must see a Psychiatrist or qualified de-addiction specialist - you seem to have a motivation - maintain it
Good luck
