GGT (LFT) Test

What is a Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) test?

The GGT test is used for the measurement of the amount of GGT in the bloodstream. GGT is a hormone that is present in the whole body but is found in abundance in the liver. In case the liver is suffering from a disease the GGT may get released into the bloodstream.

High levels of GGT in the blood are a clear indication that the liver is suffering from a chronic infection. It can also be an indicator of the damage to the bile ducts.
Even though a GGT can’t diagnose the specific reason why the liver is not working properly. Thus it is often conducted with the help of other liver tests as well. Such as the

  • Alkaline phosphatase test
  • Aspartate aminotransferase
  • Lactic dehydrogenase

Also known as gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, GGTP, Gamma-GT, GTP.

  • Tiredness 
  • Weakness 
  • Jaundice 
  • Sudden loss of appetite 
  • Abdominal pain or swelling 
  • Nausea or vomiting
