About test

Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) - Elevated GGT is found in all forms of liver disease. Measurement of GGT is used in the diagnosis and treatment of alcoholic cirrhosis, as well as primary and secondary liver tumors. GGT levels can be used to determine the cause of liver or bone diseases. Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) levels can be abnormally high in patients with liver or bone disease. In conjunction with some other blood tests,  It is more sensitive than alkaline phosphatase, the transaminases, and leucine aminopeptidase in detecting obstructive jaundice, cholangitis, and cholecystitis. Normal levels of GGT are seen in skeletal diseases; thus, GGT in serum can be used to ascertain whether a disease, suggested by elevated alkaline phosphatase, is skeletal or hepatobiliary.
