Brief Answer: XXXXXXX can be a probability

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir.

Elevated GGT along with other liver enzymes in the absence of viral markers and drinking history could point to a condition called NASH( non alcoholic stetohepatitis) .

Also if an hemangioma grows in size it can cause liver enzyme elevation.

Periodical follow up on Liver Ultrasound in mandatory in such cases.

Thank You.
