These are mildly elevated liver function tests. They can be elevated for a variety of reasons, most of which are benign. A recent viral infection can increase them. Alcohol intake can increase them. Some medications can increase them. In certain people stress can increase them. If you have hepatitis A, B, or C, that could explain the increase.

If you drink alcohol, you should decrease or stop altogether. Otherwise, have your doctor take a look at your medication list to see if there are any in particular that could be causing the increase.

you did not state if you drink alcohol or take medication.  Sgpt is elevated when your liver is stressed.  Could be gallbladder disease or liver disease.  See your doctor and have him/her explain it to you.  You may need medication to alleviate the problem.  Milk Thistle is good for the liver and may give you some relief from pain.
