Hello and hope you are doing well.

The SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transminase) test, also known as an AST test, measures the amount of a protein enzyme called glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase occurring in your blood. This enzyme is normally found in the liver, heart muscles, muscles and red blood cells. Normal adult range is 0-42U/L.

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is also known as serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT). ALT (SGPT) is, by contrast, normally found largely in the liver. This is found in a lesser extent in the heart and other tissues. It is released into the bloodstream as the result of liver injury. Normal adult range is 0-48U/L.

The elevated liver enzymes could be due to infectious mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr, CMV), active hepatitis A, B, C, or D; Wilson's disease, autoimmune I, II, or III, many alpha1-protease inhibitor deficiency or chronic persistent hepatitis. It may also indicate drug-related hepatitis, hypoxemia of the liver, milder degrees of alcohol or possibly cocaine use or an iron-overload condition known as hemochromatosis.

Repeat your Liver Function Tests (LFT). If it is persistent you could consult a gastroenterologist.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
