Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Increased SGPT indicates liver injury.It is important to know other parameters of LFT like bilirubin level.These findings are due to viral hepatitis(Hepatitis B).
SGOT is non specific and it increases in other conditions also.
Ultrasound of abdomen should be done.
Hepatitis B is a self limiting disease and in most of the cases it only require supportive treatment.
You can take tablet Ursodeoxycholic acid 300 mg twice daily for three months.It will help in regeneration of liver cells.
You should avoid fatty food.
Your doctor has prescribed right medicines.

Get well soon.
Take Care
