Can i consume alcohol with an abnormal GGT ?

hi i am 44 years old 10 10 hight and 11 stone4 and healthy.i have had 2 lft tests done recently the first one showed abnormal with my ggt at 900 due to drinking spirits and beer over 10 years ever day.after my first test i reduced my alchol to one can of beer per week mixed with lemonade and 6 weeks later took another lft test and everthing came back normal.my ggt was 49.does this mean my liver has healed?and is it safe to consume a can of beer mixed with lemonade one night per week.?i am strong minded and wouldnt want to go back to every day drinking,but would look forward to that one can per week if it wouldnt do me harm.thanks for your time kind regards stephen..

Try to minimize your intake of spirits. Drink lots of water and enjoy your food. Liver damage, some times can be permanent one. Take some hepatoprotective drugs.
