Gamma-GT liver and bile
Gamma-GT is often requested by people with signs of liver dysfunction such as: fatigue, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, bloated abdomen, jaundice, dark urine or light stool.
Blood levels of Gamma-GT can show liver damage. The most important liver values provide the enzyme Gamma-GT (gamma-glutamyl transferase). Gamma-GT, when elevated, is often responsible for blockage of the bile ducts or formation of gallstones.
Slightly elevated levels may also indicate excessive alcohol consumption. The symptoms of liver disease such as fatigue, digestive problems, nosebleeds, loss of appetite, bloating, feeling of pressure in the upper right abdomen and itching all over the body usually precede elevated values.
