Other findings?: Serum level of GGT of 67 is higher than normal and suggests injury to liver. However, an isolated lab test is not a reason to worry. What did other tests show? Do you drink? If you do, abstain for 2-3 weeks and repeat the test. Are you on any medications, including herbs and over the counter drugs? Discuss all these issues with your doctor to identify the cause of liver injury. ...Read more
Don't treat a lab: This worries me just a bit. I understand you are overweight and if the other liver enzymes are on the high side, this may your body's way of letting you know that it wants less to eat and more opportunities to exercise. If your physician is not overly concerned, I would not be either -- it's the very high values of GGT that usually are tip-offs to serious illness. ...Read more
Hard to say: Until age 60, GGT tends to increase as the years go by, faster in men than in women. At any age and for any level of drinking, it's about twice as high in african-americans. This makes for unfair situations as GGT is often used as a screen to see if someone is secretly abusing alcohol. If my GGT were above 100 regardless of who I was, I would wonder; however, it's a poor screen for disease. ...Read more
Halo, I had a medical done for work, after a long weekend (have been drinking that weekend) and they found my GAMMA GT is 100. They want to send me for a CDT test. So except for keeping away from alcohol, what else can I do, to help? I will be doing the C
Both are normal: Assuming the standard units, those numbers are normal. As to whether your liver is "bad, " it depends on the context that these tests were ordered - are you having some issues that makes you or your doctor think your liver is bad? ...Read more
Maybe nothing: About 1 person in 1000 has an autosomal dominant gene that produces a high GGT without anything else being abnormal. These folks get accused of being secret boozers which is unfair. Trusting everything else is good and that you drink seldom or not at all. ...Read more

I just found out my AST =32, ALT =67 and gamma GT = 65. Recommendations and explanation for this?
What do these high blood test numbers mean? Liver damage: blood test: alp 126 u/l gamma GT 85 u/l plts 454 x10 3/ul
Total bilirubin 6umol/L, Alk phos 63u/L, Alt 11u/L all normal. Gamma GT 38 uL normal <31. Wondering why is gamma GT out of range and what is next? C reactive protein <0.3 mg/L.All hematolog panel normal. Thanks
Normal: The numbers you present are essentially all normal. The minimal increase in GGT is highly nonspecific and so small as to be of no concern (absent other symptoms or concerns that suggest a problem with your liver or gall bladder). If concerned, suggest a retest in 1-2 months (and be sure to avoid any alcohol for 2 weeks prior to the test - excess alcohol consumption can elevate the GGT). ...Read more
Depends: Your liver is a critically important organ for long term health. Protect it. Okay to check in with your doc about tests to evaluate for gallstones and other correctable problems. Alcohol is toxic to the liver. If you are addicted to alcohol, get treatment. Be well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
