  • Without all the rest of your blood test results, (ie albumin, bilirubin, full blood count, any other inflammatory marker tests that were done) the only thing these 3 results in isolation say is that your liver is inflamed. They dont diagnose what is causing the inflammation and an ultrasound should help with a diagnosis.

  • Hello

    If it helps Tracy my GammaGT has been over 1000 (Every Doc I see is amazed I can stand up) for approx. 1 yr.

    Been in & around 6-700 for about 3yrs when a not so bright Consultant Gastroentro & my GP at the time gave me a Form DS1500 which states that in their opinions I have less than 6 mnths to live.

    Was mopey(is that how u spell mopy) for a while then noticed that I was still alive & had been getting Lots & Lots of ££££££££££s.

    Until 2 or 3 LFT give the same figures then I wouldn't worry myself as many Tablets can affect readings.

    Good Luck
