Which is the normal range of gamma GT for an african american woman? (ui/l).Thanks

Which is the normal range of gamma GT for an african american woman? (ui/l).Thanks

Hard to say: Until age 60, GGT tends to increase as the years go by, faster in men than in women. At any age and for any level of drinking, it's about twice as high in african-americans. This makes for unfair situations as GGT is often used as a screen to see if someone is secretly abusing alcohol. If my GGT were above 100 regardless of who I was, I would wonder; however, it's a poor screen for disease. ...Read more

What does it mean if my gamma GT lab report reads my results are 136 but range reads <31 u/l?

The minimal increase in GGT is highly nonspecific and so small as to be of no concern (absent other symptoms or concerns that suggest a problem with your liver or gall bladder). If concerned, suggest a retest in 1-2 months (and be sure to avoid any alcohol for 2 weeks prior to the test - excess alcohol consumption can elevate the GGT). ...Read more
