With regards to your blood glucose if it was a fasting glucose of 11.6 mmol/l you must book an appointment with your doctor immediately as you have diabetes. Even a random plasma glucose of 11.6 mmol/l is indicative of diabetes and must be confirmed. Your liver functions are also abnormal and this must be evaluated further as there can be several causes for abnormal GGT. I would recommend that you definitely go and see your doctor as soon as possible.
