In brief: Genes, I'll bet you!

Iabout one person in 1000 has an autosomal dominant gene that gives a perpetually-high ggt.
I'm assuming you alk phos and bilirubin are normal. From time to time I have to write letters explaining this to people who believe that a high ggt, which rises first in problem drinking, must mean you're secretly a drunkard. Best wishes.
