Hello my ggt test is 118 and im scare. How can I lower my ggt? Pls help

Stop worrying: If you're abusing alcohol, stop doing this for your own sake and not to treat a lab value. If you're not abusing alcohol, and your other labs aren't off, you're likely one of those folks, maybe 1 in 1000, whose GGT always runs high. It's genetic. It's not dangerous. Best wishes. ...Read more

How to lower my sgpt level of 213.4, sgot: 106.2, and ggt: 259.9?

How to lower my sgpt level of 213.4, sgot: 106.2, and ggt: 259.9?

Not voluntary: You can't just lower your liver enzymes by wishing. The cause has to be known and the offending factor removed. Hepatitis can do it, alcohol but so can statins (cholesterol medicines). Talk to your doctor and find out what can be done about it and things you should avoid to exacerbate it, and alcohol is definitely one of them. ...Read more

Lifestyle: I trust that hepatitis C, Wilson's and the other causes of elevated transaminses with fatty liver have been ruled out. I trust you don't drink alcohol. Find some form of strenuous aerobic exercise that you enjoy, and get back into it wholeheartedly and with the same passion that gave you so much enjoyment as a teenaged male. Helath doesn't come from a pill or supplement bottle. ...Read more

On the right track: I am not sure you can do anything else to lower your gft than giving up alcohol. Kudos to you for having done that. I would recommend a healthy diet low in fat and cholesterol more plant based plus fish. Red meat in moderation or not at all. Whether you need meds for cholesterol depends on details of your lipid profile and other risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes and family history. ...Read more

My bilurmin is 0.79 sgot is 45, sgpt is 41, GGT is 102, iam an social drinker, can I take liv52ds to lower those values, can I take cholesterol medicin?

Forgive my frankness: Lab values aren't illnesses to be treated, they are warnings of serious underlying disease. You know you already have a fatty liver. Whether the cause is "social" drinking, metabolic syndrome, smoldering hepatitis c, a combination or something else, the illness itself needs to be addressed -- rather than taking a "pop" remedy -- before it kills you. ...Read more

Maybe: Some antibiotics can cause increases in liver enzymes, but most drugs given for appendicitis for a short time will not cause that. Ask your doctor - there may be other drugs that you have taken. Many pain medicines have a lot of acetominophen added to the narcotic. Large doses of acetominophen can cause liver damage. ...Read more

My bro is an epileptic patient. His GGT is 416 nd white blood cells are high all other liver tests are well. Wat can we do to lower his GGT? Plz tell

Don't Rx a lab value: About one person in a few hundred naturally runs a high ggt; it's hereditary and this isn't something that needs to be treated. Wbc's fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. If there's no other sign that he's sick and his physician is good with just watching him rather than adjusting his rx to see if it's raising ggt, then the best thing to do is nothing. ...Read more

Ggt level 77 what does this mean? Could laxitives cause this

GGT: S a very "sensitive" liver function test and is usually the first to elevate (for example with heavy drinking of alcohol) LAXATIVES do NOT cause this but there are many OTHER drugs which can! You need to discuss with your PCP (Primary care Professional)
Hope this is helpful!

Can GGT results be as high as 383? (i thought the range was 1 50ish u/l) what does this mean?

Can GGT results be as high as 383? (i thought the range was 1 50ish u/l) what does this mean?

Let's talk about it: Ggt tends to rise in people who drink a lot of alcohol before other liver enzymes do. There's also a genetic trait that's not rare in which healthy people run an extremely high GGT throughout their lives, with other 'zymes normal. A couple of times a year, I have to write courtesy letters pointing this out to substance-abuse compliance people. ...Read more

What is sgpt and ggt?

Liver Enzymes: These are enzymes which are found in the liver cells. Sgpt is an old term - it's now alt (alanine aminotransferase). Ggt stands for gamma glutamyltransferase. When the liver cells are injured, these enzymes leak out and the blood levels increase. ...Read more

Serum GGT 650! am I doa? What should I expect?

Not dead yet!: About one person in a thousand has an autosomal dominant mutation that causes elevated ggt. I sometimes have to write letters on these folks' behalf to affirm that this doesn't mean they are closet boozers. If you're otherwise healthy and your remaining labs, notably alk phos and bilirubin, are okay, i'd ignore it if your physician agrees. ...Read more

My GGT 98. What can cause my GGT is high than normal range 8-35?

May be normal 4u: Around 1 person in 1000 just runs a high ggt; it's hereditary. If everything else is okay including alk phos i'd ignore it unless your physician is concerned. If there's anything else to suggest liver disease, these enzymes keep deadly things like wilson's and hemochromatosis and hepatitis from sneaking up on us -- & with ggt, alcohol and med allergies -- get follow-up. ...Read more

If my bloodwork came back with GGT levels elevated to 201, what can this mean?

If my bloodwork came back with GGT levels elevated to 201, what can this mean?

Big picture: Some people have a gene that causes elevated GGT in folks who are otherwise healthy. Occasionally I have to reassure employers that these people aren't secretly abusing alcohol, since GGT rises in drinkers before other enzymes do. If you drink some, your physician may want to repeat this after two weeks off all booze, and decide then whether to pursue a lone abnormal lab. ...Read more

Can you give me suggestions on I had bloodwork performed at work and everything came back desirable except my GGT level. It was 181.?

GGT: This is markedly elevated GGT (reference values: 7-51 IU/L). Clinically, elevated GGT levels correlate well with alcohol abuse and alcoholic liver disease. Of course alcohol intake is not the only cause of elevated GGT: certain medications and other liver diseases can show GGT increase. Please, see your doctor and limit alcohol intake. ...Read more

I'm 37yrs old male and I've got high 149 GGT result and normal ALT at 42, Is this result something critical? What is normally the problem? Thank you.

Fatty liver: B"sd
these are liver enzymes with GGT being the most sensitive to anything that can effect the liver, from too much to drink to numerous viral infections, drug exposures to name a few. As an endocrinologist most elevations of liver enzymes are due to fatty liver. Would repeat your tests in a couple weeks - very likely back to normal. ...Read more

Can I brandy or wine occasionally if GGT is 105?

Why is it up?: If your GGT is elevated, you need to find out why. If this is the only liver enzyme that is out of the reference range, and you rarely drink, chances are that you're one of those folks who just runs a high GGT (it's genetic), your liver is fine, and you can drink sensibly. Double-check with your personal physician. ...Read more
