Ok. My GGT was off the radar. Over 600. I was drinking very heavily earlier this year, due tolife issues and lack of responsibility. I have abstained for 4 weeks.
GGT is now 140. [should be <50. Was >600]
AST is now 42. [should be 40, was 72]
1. I plan to take another month off. It's not that hard really. I want to get the GGT down
2. I want to be able to drink moderately. I mean - 2 glasses of wine with a meal. Not every day. Weekends. Staying within limits
This is not a question of "Can you do that"? I know if I drink heavily again my liver probably will not be able to manage to process the alcohol and I will be in serious trouble.
I understand that I am lucky to have had my liver heal.
But - IF (and I know it is a big IF) I drink within recommend limits, and take days off, and maintain diet - am I putting myself at risk? For socialising and business a glass of wine is missed.
I will repeat my tests every 6-8 weeks. So I guess I will know if just drinking very moderately has caused my liver to react?
What do you think?
