The Relationship Between Gamma Gt Testing With Viral Hepatitis?
What is the relationship between gamma gt examination and hepatitis virus?
Gamma GT or Gamma glutamyl transferase is an examination of enzymes found in various organs of the body but the highest levels are found in the liver. The increase in the Gamma GT enzyme can be influenced by various conditions but does not specifically determine a specific disease. The increase can be influenced by several things such as impaired liver function, excessive alcohol consumption, bile disorders, liver infections such as hepatitis, or heart problems.
For this reason, if the Gamma GT examination shows an increase and is accompanied by other symptoms that lead to disorders of the liver, such as liver infection, specific examinations will be continued to determine the cause. Follow-up tests include liver enzyme blood labs, specific hepatitis infection markers, ultrasound and others.
Maintain the health of the liver by leading a healthy life, avoiding alcohol and smoking, exercising regularly, getting enough rest, avoiding taking drugs, especially pain relievers, and managing stress well.
