Hi there ,
I would like to know your other lab values, if they fall within reference range. Is only your GGT elevated and what about your other liver function test values like AST, ALT, ALP. Certain drugs can also cause an increase in GGT. Are you on any medication? Alcohol consumption can cause an increase in GGT . So cut down on alcohol, if you do consume alcohol . Meanwhile, if you dont have any other symptoms or abnormal lab values, don't worry. Hope this helps :)
