I have recently found this website and have already started a discussion not long ago, which helped me to better understand the role of liver enzymes during a blood test.
I have an appointment tomorrow with my GP because I had slightly raised liver enzymes since a little while (AST & ALT), and I am quite scared that this could be caused by something sinister, such as a cancer of the liver or a cirrhosis, even though I understand that this is not likely, especially considering my relatively young age (i.e. 25 years old).
My question is linked to GGT. I have read on internet that these are enzymes that are rather specific to the liver, implying that an elevation should direct the doctor to assess in further details the liver of the individual concerned. My question is, are GGTs always or near always elevated in liver diseases such as cirrhosis or liver cancer?
Thank you very much for your help.
