I am a carer for a housebound person who has a Gamma GT reading of 94. something.He used to be a heavy drinker but stopped 3mths ago. Although I know alcohol effects Gamma GT readings, would any of the medication he is on also have an effect on readings. The meds he is on are as follows: Omeprazole Thiamine Vitamin B Compound Strong Diazepam and Clenil.
