Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
Alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream and can leave the body either through metabolism or through urine, breath and perspiration.
About ninety percent of alcohol remain in the blood stream and needs to leave the body through metabolism alone. Gamma GT( gamma-glutamyltransferase), a liver enzyme in the blood level that is elevated with excessive alcohol consumption.The rate of gamma GT decline within the blood after stopping drinking varies between individualsA raised GGT can take up to 3-4 weeks to come down to normal after completely stopping alcohol.
Also avoid hepatotoxic drugs like NSAIDS as well.
So no alcohol for 3 to 4 weeks then repeat the liver test.If still high other causes need to be investigated..such as hepatitis.
