Dr Uzair :

Does your friend have any previously known medical conditions or drinks alcohol?

Customer:

Nothing

Dr Uzair :

Okay, elevated gamma gt levels are usually due to liver damage, this can be due to alcohol or use of medication toxic to the liver.

Dr Uzair :

Even a small amount of alcohol consumption 24 hours before the gamma gt test can cause a rise in the result.

Dr Uzair :

Elevated levels are also seen in pancreatitis, heart disease or diabetes.

Dr Uzair :

This should be followed up with further work up to rule out the above.

Dr Uzair :

And if there are no significant signs and symptoms and negative results for the above, then the gamma gt should be repeated.

Because there is always a chance of an erroneous report.
