Welcome to healthcare magic!
Growing children will have raised alkaline phosphotase level. It is due to the growing bones. so in your child's case, the raised alkaline phosphatase may be due to the growing bones.
The SGOT is slightly raised. But the more specific SGPT is normal. So it should not be considered significant and there is no need to worry.
