There is definite evidence to say that liver dysfunction is directly related to alcohol consumption, and with ongoing drinking, there can be unusual rise in the liver enzymes as in your case. This condition is called alcoholic hepatitis, and it is usually accompanied with pain in right upper abdomen, yellowness of eyes, fever and liver test abnormalities. Typically, the rise in SGOT is more than that of SGPT. If you have also taken several antibiotics, they may also cause a rise in liver parameters. Also, sometimes super added viral hepatitis can cause liver dysfunction, which can be detected by certain tests. It may be difficult at times to pinpoint the exact cause. However, it is best for you to stop alcohol (if you are consuming it), and get a thorough evaluation done from a liver specialist. Your doctor may recommend certain more blood tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, etc.
