Hi,

Normal GGT level is 0-30. Raised level of GGT is generally seen in liver diseases. However, it is not specific about the cause of liver damage or injury. But it is also to be emphasized that heavy alcohol drinking is one of the main reason of this increase. In such cases, the level of GGT usually comes to normal 2-6 weeks after the stoppage of alcohol.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
