    Dear Dr Rashid Khan and Dr Joseph Galati
    My name is Najeeb Khan hailing from Karachi and living in Block 6 of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Karachi (Pakistan). My son is 28 years old (jobless) and non alcholic. His recent blood test at AKUH Laboratory reveals GAMMA GT of 132 IU/L vs max limit of 55 IU/L. Serum Cholesterol 202 mg/dl, Alkaline Phosphatase was 86 IU/L, SGPT (ALT) was 33 IU/L, S.Total Bilirubin was 0.7 mg/dl. His Spot Urine Creatinine was 177 mg/dl. All other tests i.e Blood CP, Urine DR & Culture and Stool DR & culture were normal.
    His Abdomen US was normal with following remarks for liver “ Liver is normal in size and echotexture with regular margins. No focal lesion seen. No intra or extra hepatic biliary dilation identified. CBD measures 204 cm. Portal vein measures 7.6 cm.
    He had UTI after Ramzan, which the doctors probably attributed to low fluid intake and was successfully treated with antibiotics (Levofin (levofloxacin) 500mg, once daily for 7 days). For the past 2 weeks he is not feeling good and complains also loss of weight. He felt sort of tired and thirsty. I would highly appreciate your professional opinion on this high level of GAMMA GT of 132 IU/L and for its treatment.
