Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. The levels you mention are associated with fatty liver disease. Is this a condition you have been diagnosed with? A similar ASK was sent in a while back, that may provide some insight:
EmpowHER ASK: High SGPT, GGT levels
Here too is more information on fatty liver disorder: Mayoclinic.com: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease information.
If this is not the correct information, let us know so we can better help you.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.

You may want to talk with your doctor about proper treatment, if you haven't already. If it is fatty liver disorder that you have been diagnosed, it commonly is treated with lifestyle changes, not medication. According to the link I provided, listed under "Treatments and Drugs", it says, "No standard treatment for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease exists. Instead, doctors typically work to treat the risk factors that contribute to your liver disease. For instance, if you're obese, your doctor can help you to lose weigh through diet, exercise and, in some cases, medications and surgery. If a drug is causing your fatty liver disease, your doctor may try to switch you to a different medication."
Here are the home remedies and lifestyle changes that may help alleviate some of your symptoms (like high levels):
- Lose weight. If you're overweight or obese, reduce the number of calories you eat each day and increase your physical activity in order to lose weight. Aim to lose 1 or 2 pounds a week. If you've tried to lose weight in the past and have been unsuccessful, ask your doctor for help.
- Choose a healthy diet. Eat a healthy diet that's rich in fruits and vegetables. Reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet and instead select healthy unsaturated fats, such as those found in fish, olive oil and nuts. Include whole grains in your diet, such as whole-wheat breads and brown rice.
- Exercise and be more active. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. Incorporate more activity in your day. For instance, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk instead of taking short trips in your car. If you're trying to lose weight, you might find that more exercise is helpful. But if you don't already exercise regularly, get your doctor's OK first and start slowly.
- Control your diabetes. Follow your doctor's instructions to stay in control of your diabetes. Take your medications as directed and closely monitor your blood sugar.
- Lower your cholesterol. A healthy plant-based diet, exercise and medications can help keep your cholesterol and your triglycerides at healthy levels.
- Protect your liver. Avoid things that will put extra stress on your liver. For instance, don't drink alcohol. Follow the instructions on all medications and over-the-counter drugs.
- Increase consumption of antioxidants. The safest way to increase the antioxidants you get is to eat more fruits and vegetables. If you're interested in vitamin supplements, though, talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks. Large doses of vitamin supplements could interfere with medications or cause other complications.

It's important to work with your doctor to find a treatment plan that works for you and doesn't add complications to your overall condition.
