Glutamyl transferrase is a liver enzyme. It is known to be high in hte blood following damage to the liver cells. It could result from many possibel causes but commonly after a bout of alcohol/chronic intake. You will need to quit drinking alcohol and smoking if you are engaging in these activities as they both are very dangerous. Kindly speak to your Doctor in this regard.
