Liver Function Test
My liver function test came back with a gamma Gt reading of 216 and all my doctor said was stay off the alcohole, the problem is i dont drink every day or i will have one or 2 beers on the weekend only, what else could be the cause of such a high reading and what can i do about it?
Please help?

Hallo Dallas
High Gamma GT can be due to gall stones, liver disease or chronic alcohol abuse. If you are not using a lot of alcohol, ask your doctor to check for gall stones?
