More About the GGT Blood Test

The GGT test, also known as the GGT blood test and the gamma-glutamyl transferase test, measures the blood level of GGT. GGT is used to help screen for liver health and look for problems with the bile ducts.

GGT is a type of enzyme found throughout the body but primarily in the liver. It is involved with several metabolic processes and elevated levels are typically found when liver disease is present. GGT is often ordered as the same time as or after an elevated alkaline phosphatase test to see if elevated alkaline phosphatase levels are associated with the liver or the bone. Additionally, GGT blood levels tend to be elevated after drinking alcohol or using certain types of medications and there may be some correlation between elevated GGT lab test results and blood vessel disease.
