I have do liver function test without dr consultion. In my medical report it show for GGT is 60. What this mean?

LFTs: Not sure why you decided to have GGT done. It's not recommended to do it "just because". There's a good chance an abnormal result on one reading will be normal on he next one, so called spurious elevation. Also, different labs have different reference values, so i cannot tell whether it's ok or not without knowing the reference values for a particular test. ...Read more

Liver function test results: GGT 90 U/l. All other indicators including Bilubrin, ALT, AST, Proteins etc are well in normal range Please advise on GGT?

GGT: The GGT level, when elevated with all of the rest of the liver tests being completely normal, is usually nonspecific and does not necessarily mean that liver disease is present. All I would do initially is repeat those tests in 2 to 3 months. If it is still elevated, you should consider seeing a gastroenterologist just to be sure that nothing is wrong. Good luck. ...Read more

Probably not!: While all drugs can be hepatotoxic, the insult t liver cells (hepatocytes) will elevate SGOT and SGPT, SGPT usually first. SGOT comes from muscle as well;. SGPT only liver. GGT comes from the biliary tree, gallbladder and connective tissue of the liver, frequently indicating gall bladder issues. I suppose it CAN happen, but this would be exceedingly rare. ...Read more
