Hello,

I understand your concern and would explain that the high SGOT and SGPT levels could be related to painkillers (if you have taken lately) or a chronic liver infection or biliary stones.

For this reason, I would recommend also performing an abdominal ultrasound and some further blood lab tests (anti-HBV, anti HCV, HBsAg, etc.).

Regarding the high uric acid levels, they could be indicative of a high protein diet or to Podagra.

I recommend discussing with your doctor on the above tests.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka,
