Hi dear
Your GGT is very high. it must be due to long alcohol intake for a long time. In the long run, it can lead to loss of appetite, jaundice, fatty liver or even liver failure. Reduce your alcohol consumption to zero in next 2 days .
For medicinal help or to leave alcohol at home i can help you. You dont need to go to a de addiction centre if you are with a specialist in proper care at home.
Best of Luck!!!!!!!!
