What causes high level of Gamma GT?

I have just come back from the doctor and my Gamma GT was 149. In 2008 it was 142, and I had Cholesterol of 5.6 and Anion gap of 10. I have lost about 8 kg since 2008 and drink less alcohol and am no longer on antidepressants. The doctor is doing more tests, but am wondering if Coke Zero or something else can cause such high levels?
