Liver enzymes (SGPT,SGOT) levels

I am 35 years old male, non smoker, very rarely drink alcohol. Recently I had visited doctor for routine physical checkup. Everything look normal except SGPT = 513 U/L and SGOT = 193 U/L . So doctor suspected about liver function and ordered Ultra sonic test. Everything came normal in this test, kidney and liver has normal limits and nothing wrong. I still claim that I have very healthy food habits. I do not have any pain or unhealthy symptoms like vomiting / nausea etc. Doctor is trying to take blood samples again.

Please help me to conclude anything else causing these levels high?
