Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.

From the report, it is obvious that there is high SGOT and SGPT level . Except those all are within normal limit.

Isolated increase of these two enzymes indicates presence of hepatocellular injury.

Now, this injury may be due to chronic alcohol intake or may be due to obstruction of the bile output.

So, you should do an ultrasound scan of whole abdomen to rule out any other possibility.

In the mean time, you should avoid alcohol intake, and oily, spicy food. Take some liver protecting enzymes.

Regards.
