Hi and welcome to HCM. This is slighly increased SGPT only.
Your symptoms may be caused by stomach issue or by fatty liver.
Stomach swelling may be caused by high acid secretion which is found in gastritis. Symptoms that are experienced in such conditions are pain and tightness in upper stomach, bloating, breathing difficulties, heartburn, feeling of lump and sore in throat, gurgling sound in throat, fatigue and loss of apetite.
Symptoms are aggravated after meal, long sitting, leaning forward,stress and anxiety. In the beginning this is treated by changing dietary habbits.
You should avoid alcohol,coffee,smoking,fats and fast food, carbonated drinks and eat more milk and milk products, fruit and vegetables,boiled food and natural beverages and teas. 1 hour after meal you should not sit or lay. Also lay with elevated upper body. If you are overweight you should do often exercise.
Also ypu should do ultrasounds to verify is there liver damage. I dont think that because you have no significant liver enzymes elevation. For improvement of these findings you should avoid alcohol and fats. COntrol your blood lipids, glucosa and lose weight if overweight.
Wish you good health.

Thanks for posting your query.
Normal values of SGOT ranges from 5 to 45 while SGPT ranges ranges from 7 to 60 U/L. So your SGOT and SGPT are within normal range. Abdominal pain and swelling visible on endoscopy suggests gastric ulcer/gastritis which may be due to H.pylori infection.
You should get test blood antibodies to H. pylori bacteria after that you can be prescribed a drug regime to eradicate H.Pylori.
Avoid spicy foods, carbonated drinks, smoking and alcohol.
Avoid ingestion of NSAIDs like aspirin for long term.
vitamin C supplements (orange juices) can help to heal ulcers and inflammations faster.
You can talk to your treating doctor in this regard.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
