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.
