Hello from JustAnswer. Of these substances, the most likely to be causing an increase of the GGT would be the alcohol and the paracetamol. Statistically, it is more likely to be related to the moderate wine intake than this dose of paracetamol, but if you want to be certain to reduce the GGT, it would be more likely to work if both are stopped. So, the quickest way to reduce the GGT would be to stop the alcohol and paracetamol. The time that it will take to return to normal will vary from a couple weeks to a month or two. If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
