What causes elevated liver enzymes?

Hi. I took a liver test recently and my levels are SGOT 61, SGPT 150. I'm a diabetic going on Glucophage 500mg 3 time a day and Januva 1 time a day. The doctor who analyzed my last radiology report advised that I have fatty liver. I've had 2 kidney stones (calcium) cases in the past 4 years. Could you advise whether I should be worried about the SGOT and SGPT levels. My doctor tells me that it's normal because I have fatty liver.

Hi, if you are drinking a lot of alcohol in past ? If not, elevated SGOT and SGPT is showing that you have really fatty liver, studied shows. I want to ask you that, If you have a problem with your coagulating or with your bleeding time ? Like as PTT on your liver lab parameters..
