High SGOT: Sgot is a liver enzyme that is released when the liver is inflamed and liver cells are injured. There are many causes of elevated SGOT including viral hepatitis, genetic condition and even cancer. You should consult your doctor to find out the cause. However, the most common cause is fatty liver: http://www.Laendo.Net/english/fatty-liver-75894941.
