Jaundice advice needed

I am 29yrs old male, suffering from Jaundice. It was diagnosed 1 month after my Typhoid got cured. After taking care for 2.5 weeks, my Bilirubin has steadily reduced from 7.3 to 3.2. But SGPT is 65.3 and SGOT 86, they have not reduced much. Should i be concerned about high SGPT/SGOT?

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
It will gradually decrease.
Just do not worry.
Get it checked out after 3-4 weeks and it should have come to normal range.
You can consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.

When fever is followed by jaundice it is more likely due to viral hepatitis or leptospirosis. Whatever be the cause, once there is hepatitis (inflammation of liver) it takes time for SGOT/SGOT (liver enzymes) to settle down. Repeat them after 2 and 4 weeks; the values would have settled.
Next Steps
Avoid fatty or oily food/alcohol. Do not over exert for some more time.
