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?

Typically a hepatitis panel is one of the first things done  to rule out viral hepatitis. There are a number of cause of elevated liver enzymes. I got this from Mayo Clinic
