    A GGT test may be recommended when you display signs and symptoms of liver disease. Some of the most common symptoms of liver disease are

    • Weakness, fatigue
    • Loss of appetite
    • Swelling in abdomen and abdominal pain
    • Dark urine or light coloured stool
    • Jaundice like symptoms

    GGT test is also ordered for candidates who may be suspected of alcohol abuse or those who are undergoing treatment for alcohol recovery to monitor the effectiveness.

    A GGT test is usually ordered along with other routine Liver function tests and sometimes along with ALP test – alkaline phosphatase test, an enzyme found in liver and bones.

  • This test helps rule out liver disease or a bile duct disease
  • It also helps to differentiate between liver and bone disease
  • Also used to monitor alcohol abuse

GGT or Gamma Glutamyl Transferase is a common enzyme that is present in all organs but is found in the highest concentration in the liver. GGT is an extremely sensitive liver enzymes and therefore is very useful to detect liver problems and especially bile duct problems. The bile ducts carry the bile from liver to enzyme and any damage in bile ducts due to tumours or stones lead to an elevated GGT level. This damage to bile duct results in dark coloured urine or light-coloured stool. The GGT test is used along with other liver function tests for proper diagnosis of liver disorders if it is suspected. GGT levels are high when there is a chronic alcohol abuse.

Reference Values

Reference range of the Gamma GGT test is vastly different basis age and gender of the patient. Your doctor will help you interpret your report basis the result and taking in to account your medical history and symptoms.

Interpretations

A low or normal GGT test result indicates that it is unlikely that a person has liver disease or any damage due to alcohol abuse.

A high GGT level can help rule out bone disease as the cause of an increased ALP level, but if GGT is low or normal, and then an increased ALP is more likely due to bone disease. ALP is alkaline phosphatase enzyme that is found in liver and tissue. If both ALP and GGT results are high, then it indicates a liver disorder. If ALP is high and GGT is normal, then it is more likely a bone disorder than a liver disorder.
