hello,
welcome to healthcaremagic
increased ggt found in diseases of the liver, biliary system, and pancreas.
Gamma GT is elevated by large quantities of alcohol ingestion.recently it has also been found to be elevated in cardiovascular diseases and is under active investigation as a cardiovascular risk marker.some drugs can also increase the level like phenytoin.
so first of all completely stop alcohol and have a good lifestyle.
take care

There does not appear to be any significant liver damage but the fact that GGT is high, it usually indicates chronic alcoholism. You must stop alcohol immediately. There are various support groups which will help you do this.
