Hi, my husband went for his medical tests for insurance upgrade. Test results as follows: GGT, 181 AST, 29 ALT,94. The GGT and ALT is above the level. What can be the possible cause for this? How can he lower the levels? He doesn't have any medical problems.

Hi

This needs further study with a screen for hepatitis and a liver ultrasound
The elevations may be from alcohol use if he drinks or use of NSAIDs or
Tylenol, but it could mean fatty liver disorder or hepatitis
