Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have yellow discoloration of eyes & urine/ loss of appetite/ abdominal pain?
With the available described symptoms, you are most likely suffering from alcoholic hepatitis.
Presence of deranged liver function test and history of alcohol suggests the diagnosis.
Quitting from alcohol is must as it is an alarming sign and continuing alcohol may progress your illness and may cause cirrhosis of liver.
I would suggest to continue eustochol 300 mg BD for coming 6 months despite absence of icterus.
Alcohol hepatitis is a revertable condition and cirrhosis is irreversible condition.
You can continue gym exercise and try to live life without alcohol.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Alcohol consumption is a very important cause for high liver enzymes.
There is no specific medicine to bring down your SGOT and SGPT LEVELS.  
however there are ways to reduce them  
1... Stop alcohol totally. 
2.. Regular aerobic exercises for 40 minutes a day  
3.., avoiding junk foods like maggie,noodles,pasta,pizza,white bread,burgers and colas.  
4.. Consumption of green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits suited for diabetics.  
5.. Avoiding deep fried and fatty foods  
6.. Take super B complex vitamin along with 800 i.u. Of VIT K and 1000 mg VIT C,once a day.  
7.. Keep your weight in your required BMI range.  

Your SGOT,SGPT,fatty liver shall become normal in 3 to 6 months time.
