Thanks for posting your query.
Your SGPT is only very mildly raised and rest of the liver function test report shows values within normal range.
This mild increase in SGPT is insignicant and you need not worry.
Most of the times it is due to fatty liver.
You can get an ultrasound scan done to see whether you have fatty liver.
I hope that answers your query.
