Hello,

Your liver enzymes AST & ALT are in normal range.

GGT is midly high.

Just avoid alcohol, hepatotoxic drugs like tylenol etc.

Repeat the test after 3 months.

If still high, then you need a liver ultrasound, hepatitis testing.

Avoid alcohol completely
Expert:  doctornihil replied 7 years ago.

If possible yes.

But, social drinking in moderation may be ok.

Thanks DOC

0.5mg of alprazolam at night to sleep can this also cause ggtp to be high

Unlikely.
