Drinking?: That pattern is seen with alcohol intake, if not abuse. Repeat after 10 days of sobriety; numbers should be at least 50% better. Discuss with md to see if further evaluation is needed.

Liver damage: Thees are markers of liver damage, but don't tell the full story.

In the interim, avoid things known to cause liver damage, like alcohol.

How can I lower levels of AST (sgot) and ALT (sgpt)?

Depends on the cause: Sgot and SGPT are liver enzymes. Lowering them depends on the cause of the elevation. Some medications can cause the elevation and stopping the medications will result in normalizing them. Alcohol, gallstones, infections (mono, hepatitis), and other liver toxins can also cause elevated liver enzymes.

How to lower my sgpt level of 213.4, sgot: 106.2, and ggt: 259.9?

Not voluntary: You can't just lower your liver enzymes by wishing. The cause has to be known and the offending factor removed. Hepatitis can do it, alcohol but so can statins (cholesterol medicines). Talk to your doctor and find out what can be done about it and things you should avoid to exacerbate it, and alcohol is definitely one of them.

Lifestyle: I trust that hepatitis C, Wilson's and the other causes of elevated transaminses with fatty liver have been ruled out. I trust you don't drink alcohol. Find some form of strenuous aerobic exercise that you enjoy, and get back into it wholeheartedly and with the same passion that gave you so much enjoyment as a teenaged male. Helath doesn't come from a pill or supplement bottle.

Does lower SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT) levels (10 and 14 respectively) means weaker liver function? What is the average number of these hormones in blood?

Not necessarily: Liver function is mainly looked at through total protein, albumin, international normalized ratio levels, which are proteins that the liver produces to help other parts of the body-if they are consistently low then it can suggest liver dysfunction or under functioning. AST and ALT are markers also, but not as specific for liver dysfunction as the above mentioned.

What is the cure for high sgpt and sgot levels?

Elevated liver funct: I can't say there is a cure for elevated liver functions, but we can treat the condition. First of all we need to find out the cause. You need to see your physician for a comprehensive history and physical exam, history of exposure to toxin, infections, drug history, diet history. You may need to have a liver US and maybe a fallow up liver CT.
