Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is a test used to help determined type of liver disease and bile duct obstructions. Elevated levels may be due to liver diseases, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis, but they may also be due to other conditions, such as congestive heart failure, diabetes, or pancreatitis. They may also be caused by alcohol abuse or use of drugs that are toxic to the liver
