Hi teresa,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Raised gamma GT levels can be due to steroid treatment because prednisolone is a cause for cholestasis liver dysfunction.
it would resolve within two weeks of stopping the prednisolone, but do not stop steroids abruptly.
You can get a consult from New Zealand consulates about their acceptance.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
