Metabolic panel blood test shows elevated SGPT, SGOT levels. Family history of diabetes. How to lower levels?

I recently had a metabolic panel blood test done. My SGOT level was 81 and my SGPT level was 144. Of course these are definitely high and a cause for concern. I have never been diagnosed with hep but I am overweight and have a family history of diabetes (I have not been diagnosed). Are these levels extremely high and what can I do to lower them?

Thanks for writing in.
High SGOT and SGPT levels associated with overweight is usually due to fatty liver. This can be diagnosed by a good ultrasound examination. You need to take care to bring these levels to normal at the earliest. You will need a integrated treatment comprising of exercise, liver medications and dietary modifications.
