  • Hi as Iv been ggt can rise and fall for many reasons how are your other lfts coming out, how's your cholesterol and weight, also one small glass of alcohol within48 hours can raise it.

  • Hi all other bloods and cholesterol are fine, my weight has been the same since i started having bloods done 3 years ago, it just seam that since i've had my gallblader removed that when my ggt has gone higher , also i didnt have a drink for two week before having bloods done

  • I have auto immune diseases and that raises mine as well, do you have arthritis at all

  • No arthritis

  • i believe it no acolol that show up on gamma gt its the toxins that show up an tells doctors u drink.

  • GGT is in other organs, not just the Liver. But lets assume its the liver, the enzymes leaks into the blood when there is damage to your biliary cells, ALP is usually measured too, again these are in the biliary system.

    It could be tiny stones that are stuck in your ducts. PBC is also a thought, which is not a disease i would wish on anyone. You need to be checked for auto immune conditions , which the doctor may be doing in the next round of bloods.

    Try not to get too alarmed just yet, hopefully you will have some answers soon.

  • Many thanks for that
