Brief Answer:
you can cheat a test, dont cheat yourself

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I think you should skip alcohol completely
Doing that will help you clear GGT

Meanwhile try hepatoprotective agents like Silymarin.
Best of luck

Thanks,

A little brief for an answer...

I have stopped drinking alcohol and am taking thiamine (100mg) and milk thistle (silybum marianum) complex tincture (2 x 500mg) daily. Can I increase these doses in the short term and if so will it speed recovery?

I am also eating fruit and drinking plenty of fluids. Are there any other dietary methods which may help?

I understand your comment re cheating myself. That isn't happening, I simply have a time imperative to have my blood tested.

Regards
