Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,alone slightly high SGOT which is a liver enzyme is not clinically significant and doesn't indicate any serious health issue or liver damage.

You shouldn't worry about it if all other blood work and parameters are within normal range.

It's very slightly high and not so dangerous.

Avoid pain killers,alcohol and fat rich diet.

And retest again after 4 weeks.

Possibly you 'll definitely see normal level.

Otherwise don't think about it seriously.

You are fine.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
