What are the symptoms present? I understand your concern regarding your liver enzyme results. Elevated liver enzymes such as sgot and sgpt may be attributed to a variety of issues such as medication side effect, drinking alcohol, hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, over-the-counter pain medications, as well as more serious conditions like alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and heart attack. In your case, if there is history of alcohol intake, try to regulate or avoid alcohol. Weight reduction is also highly recommended. If repeat liver enzymes are still high after 1-2 months and additional symptoms occur, further evaluation and additional diagnostic tests may need to be done. It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
