Paracetamol overdose can cause rise in GGT but also causes rise in other liver function test parameters like SGOT, SGPT, Prothrombin time. The GGT could be elevated due to alcohol intake. It is also seen in cholestatic disorders like hepatitis and gall stones. You will need to do other tests of liver function to help in the diagnosis. It is also seen in fatty liver. Avoid fatty food, oily food, fried food and junk food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Exercise daily and stay fit.
