What causes elevated GAMMA GT?

I am a 46 year old female, standing at 1.57 cm and weighing 51 kg. Received my health screening report- my liver profile is normal except for an elevated GAMMA GT reading at 66. Is there any reasons that would caused the elevated reading? I have been advised to take another test in 3 months time. Thks Sally

Thanks for writing to HCM

Increased GGT indicates liver injury.It is important to know about other parameters of LFT like SGPT,SGOT,bilirubin level etc.
It is important to know about alcohol history.
You need proper clinical examination and few more investigations.
Other investigations include routine hemogram,RBS(Random blood sugar),Viral markers,Ultrasound of abdomen.Further investigations can be done if needed.

You may need medicines after proper checkup.
You should avoid alcohol if you take it.
Hope i have answered your query.

Take Care
