Customer Question

I recently tested for levels of GGT and results came out as 256!! I suffer from chronic acid and carry a extra weight. I'm hypertensive and quit smoking two months back. I've drastically cut on my drinking. What else should I do to get it back to within normal range?
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: I have a healthy appetite. I'm taking amlodipine for the hypertension. It makes me weak and sleepy so I supplement with vitamin B complex yablets
JA: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?
Customer: My last check up was mid July. Yes, my dad and late mom all had high blood pressure
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Everything else seems ok. It's the GGT level that is worrying me.
