The Gamma-Glutamyl Transpeptidase (GGT) test is used to measure the amount of the enzyme GGT in your blood. This enzyme is present mainly in the liver and is also present in various other organs such as the gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. A high level of GGT can be a sign of liver disease or bile duct injury/blockage. The test is also used for diagnosis of liver diseases. Your doctor may suggest the test if you have symptoms like fatigue, weakness, jaundice, loss of appetite, abdominal pain or swelling, dark coloured urine, nausea and vomiting. This test may also be used to differentiate liver and bone disease if ALP levels are elevated. In liver diseases both GGT and ALP levels are elevated and in bone diseases only ALP levels are elevated.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
High levels of GGT may also be caused by diabetes, heart failure, metabolic syndrome, pancreatitis or some of the drugs that are toxic to the liver.
Some of the symptoms of liver disease include: yellowing of eyes and skin, abdominal pain and swelling, swelling of the legs and ankles, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dark urine, pale stools, etc.
Drugs that may affect GGT levels such as carbamazepine, cimetidine, furosemide, heparin, isotretinoin, methotrexate, oral contraceptives, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and valproic acid, etc.
