Diagnosed about 10 years ago with increased bilirubin..
Liked to drink my Duvel and my wines..
5 years ago hear that my GGT is way too high... so questI ones about my drinking.. surprising, because didn't feel like a drinker..
In 2014 had an echo. . Liver in perfect condition, expect for the GGT- values.. 300+
Then became expat in W-Africa for more than 2 years.. wine and beer...
After coming back to Belgium still a GGT of 286..
ALT and AST OK. .still last December..
Went back to Africa and had my drinks.. arrived in Belgium and stopped drinking from 16th of April till 24th of July.. (100days)
Went to my GP on 14th of June.. GGT lowered to 188 but ALT and AST slightly increased.. (however withing the ranges, but close)
2 weeks later I take this results (was complete blood-results) to the hospital in Leuven.. a highly rated hospital... they see the results and almost comfort me.. nice decrease of the GGT.. AST and ALT still within range.. everything looks good.. let us take new liver blood tests..
2 weeks later I hear from my GP that GGT has increased again to 204.. ALT and AST remained the same.. bit bilirubin almost doubled.. no drinks at all, but I was taking 2 tabets of Zolpidem every night between GP tests and hospital tests.. in hospital they touched my feet, my belly, my liver.. all seemed fine.. and now because of the increase of bilirubin and GGT they want a new echo in November.. Should I be scared??.Read less
