If you do, abstain for 2-3 weeks and repeat the test. Are you on any medications, including herbs and over the counter drugs? Discuss all these issues with your doctor to identify the cause of liver injury. ...Read more

Probably just you: About 1 person in 1000 has an autosomal dominant tendency to a high ggt. These people get accused wrongly of being closet drinkers. It's really unfortunate and I'm sorry this happened to you. I trust you're not on any medications that might be doing this. ...Read more

Results are numbers: Lab results are just numbers, so a doctor is needed to look at the whole picture of the patient's situation. Gamma-glutamyltransferase (ggt) is an enzyme that occurs in liver cells. If there is a reason to suspect liver disease, then the GGT blood test can be done. If the result is high, damage to liver cells is suspected, but it can be from gallstones, infection, etc..., not just alcohol use. ...Read more

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

Gamma gt= 42 ul/ litre. Is it ok for an african obese woman?

Don't treat a lab: This worries me just a bit. I understand you are overweight and if the other liver enzymes are on the high side, this may your body's way of letting you know that it wants less to eat and more opportunities to exercise. If your physician is not overly concerned, I would not be either -- it's the very high values of GGT that usually are tip-offs to serious illness. ...Read more

Lab tests: It is almost impossible to interpret isolated lab tests without knowing anything about the results of all of the rest of the tests, including normals and the medical background of the patient. If you have the test results, you might consider a consult with HealthTap Prime, in which you can upload the results and have them evaluated by a doctor immediately. Or ask your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

My liver test results are as below --- bilirubin 1.74mg/dl and gamma GT 48.7 iu/l, it shows high in report. What are the risks and how to treat?

Means nothing alone: These labs are meaningless in the absence of clinical data and other labs. These may simply be normal for you; folks with gilbert's run high bilirubin but are healthy, and many folks run high GGT in this range. The ranges are set so that several % of healthy folks fall outside. If you're on a medication that can cause cholestasis and this is new, consider discontining.

Liver: In view of recent gall bladder problems, possible inflammation and gall bladder surgery, I recommend waiting another couple of weeks before performing complete liver function testing including hepatitis A, B and C panel.

Result for my enlarge liver bilirubin direct. 36 and indirect 1.05 and gamma GT is 93 and remain test in range so what is the problem and no alcohol?

Cholestasis?: Thanks for clarifying. Something may be slowing the flow of bile in your liver; your direct bilirubin and GGT are just a bit high. If you're not taking any medications and your imaging studies aren't remarkable, you might be asked simply to watch this; it may simply be you. Or your physician may refer or work you up. This isn't suggestive of alcohol in the first place. ...Read more
