High GGT liver enzymes

Early this year I got very sick lack of sleep, low back pain, inflamed kees and very tired all the time.  The lab test indicated high LGT GGT and SGT, atter further testing endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultra sound etc. nothing was found to be the case,  A went to see a naturopat physician and she told me that my issue was parasites impacting my liver and kidneys, i was given medicine for the parasites and after 6 weeks the stool sample indicates that I don't have parasites however my GGT is till eleveted not as much as before but it is 95.  What is the possible cause or whom should i consider consulting for this matter, is a biopsy the next step?

I would appreciate your input

Hi there:

doctornee answered a similar question to nicolette1972 on May 17, 2009.  The header was: "liver enzymes abnormal".  This is what he said:

Thanks for writing to the forum!
High concentrations of GGT are found in the liver, bile ducts, and the kidney. Hence your kidney and urinary problems could be causing the high GGT level. Greater-than-normal levels of GGT may indicate:
• Congestive heart failure
• Cholestasis (congestion of the bile ducts)
• Cirrhosis
• Hepatitis
• Liver ischemia (blood flow deficiency)
• Liver necrosis
• Liver tumor
• Use of hepatotoxic drugs (drugs toxic to liver)

Hope this helps. Do consult a good urologist. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!"
