Few common causes would be looked for the abnormal liver enzymes:
2) Autoimmune hepatitis, which is not uncommon with the ulcerative colitis (which too is an autoimmune disease).
3) Transient rise due to some virus which resolves on its own.
SGOT and SGPT; Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) are intracellular liver enzymes with mitochondrial and cytoplasmic forms. Hyperthyroidism has been noted to raise both SGOT and SGPT levels. Following causes should be ruled out;
1) Non alcoholic fatty liver disease
2) Hepatitis A to E
3) Other virus; Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus, and HSV
Following approach would be done to control these raise of liver enzymes;
1) Weight reduction, if you are overweight.
2) Stopping alcohol, if you drink.
Further investigations required would be;
1) serum protein electrophoresis for autoimmune hepatitis
2) thyroid-stimulating hormone levels;
3) creatine kinase levels;
4) antibodies for celiac sprue;
5) alpha-1-antitrypsin phenotype and levels;
6) adrenocortical insufficiency (Addison's disease)
