Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Gamma glutamyl transferase (gamma GT / GGT) is an enzyme that plays a role in the metabolism of drugs and various toxic substances in the liver. The liver is the main organ that produces this enzyme. However, there are also other organs that can produce this enzyme, such as the gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and odd. The normal value of GGT in the blood is 0-51 IU / L. If there is a 2-3 times increase from the normal range indicates that there is a significant increase in the gamma GT enzyme in the blood. This indicates the possibility of interference with the liver, gallbladder or bile duct. However, it still must be confirmed by the clinical sufferer. For this reason, discuss the results of your laboratory with the doctor who requested an examination. In order to be matched with the clinical results obtained from a doctor's examination. Considering that laboratory examination only functions as a support in establishing the diagnosis.
Thus hopefully useful.
