May be: How high were the levels? What did rest of the liver function tests show? It would be prudent to discuss all the results along with rest of your health profile with your doctor.

It depends.: This depends on the levels. If they are really high, like in active hepatitis, you would likely be so sick you would need to be in a hospital, and other lab values would be abnormal. If just elevated, it could be gallstones. Levels in between can mean ischemic disease, and mildly elevated levels may indicate cirrhosis. So you must find how high they are and see your doctor for a work-up.

Depends: Sgpt is present in liver cells and the usual cause of high level is alcohol intake. Hepatitis, drug reaction and heart failure are other causes.
