GGT SERUM ELEVATED
Dear Dr,
My husband who is an athlete (marathon runner) just did a GGT Serum test and the result was that of 104u ml the test ranges are from (8 - 64).

He never drinks and is very healthy, racing and all.

What could be the possible causes please and what advice would you give us? He only takes normal vitamns, Cod Liver Oil tablets and Glucosimine.

We are slightly worried.

Thanks and regards,
Marisa

An elevated GGT by itself really doesn't tell us very much.
Frequently an elevated Alkaline Phosphatase together with an elevated GGT suggests a liver or bile duct problem.
If AST and ALT were also elevated it would strongly suggest a liver disorder.
An elevated GGT may suggest a liver problem but it can also be seen with pancreas and  gallbladder issues.
There is also evidence that an elevated GGT can be present with increased cardiovascular risk. Because of his running you might dismiss this possibility but if there are no other signs of liver disease you should consider asking his doctor about it.

Keep in mind that I am not in the medical field in any capacity. I am merely a patient and my post should be read in that context.

Good luck,
Mike
