The second test was after virtually no drinking-still occasional, so although it has dropped, its still not good.
I do take strong painkillers after near fatal accident in 1985 and I think it is that which is causing liver damage. Any one have experience of this, or with same high level and been told what prog is?
I'm the same as you I have high gamma levels due to the painkillers I take for a back injury. My last gamma check was just under 100 which I consider high because I don't drink. The Doctor said that it was down to the painkillers.
