Pain in abdomen. Had alcohol. Blood test showed elevated gamma GT. Serious?

Hello, I m a 30 years old male. I don t smoke or drink alcohol in excess. I had pain in my abdomen so did a blood test last week. Everything was within the normal range except gamma GT which was 91. I had normal ALP (77), ALT (36), and Amylase (110). Is there anything serious that I have to be worried about? Note that a week before the test was done, I had used alcohol (three days in a row) and another beer just three days before the test. Again, I don t drink alcohol in excess, I was in a conference so had some extra fun! Thanks, Bob

Hi Bob

Any single report can not be used to stamp a diagnosis

Get it repeated after 15 days of abstinence from alcohol

Any way at your age alcohol is not going to help you in any form, better keep away from it

Hope this clears your doubts
