Understanding Gamma Glutamyl Transferase in Bangalore

What is Gamma Glutamyl Transferase in Bangalore?

A Gamma Glutamyl Transferase test measures the amount of GGT, a liver enzyme, in the body. This test is used to check for any blockage in the bile ducts and monitor the treatment response of liver diseases such as jaundice and hepatitis.

What does Gamma Glutamyl Transferase measure?

Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is an enzyme found in various organs, with the highest concentration in the liver. Usually, this enzyme is present in low levels in the blood. However, when there is liver damage or disease, GGT is released into the bloodstream, causing an increase in GGT levels. In addition to the liver, GGT can also be elevated in conditions affecting the bile ducts or the pancreas. It is usually, the first liver enzyme to rise in the blood when there is any damage or obstruction in the bile duct, making it one of the most sensitive liver enzyme tests for detecting bile duct problems.

Q. Why do I need a GGT test?

You might need a gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) test if you show symptoms of liver disease or bile duct disorders, such as the yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark and pale urine, light-colored stool, nausea, vomiting, or belly pain.

Q. Is fasting required before a GGT test?

No, fasting is not required before a GGT test. You can eat or drink as per your normal routine before the test.

Q. Is there any risk associated with a GGT test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting when a needle is pricked and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Rarely, some people may also experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times a day for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. What happens if my GGT level is high?

If your GGT test result shows high levels of GGT enzyme, it might be a sign of obstructive liver disease, acute and chronic viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, cholestasis, alcoholic liver disease, and liver tumor. Consult your doctor to get the best possible advice.

Q. What are the natural ways to manage GGT levels?

You must consult your doctor to manage your GGT levels. However, some dietary interventions and healthy lifestyle choices can help you to keep your GGT levels in a healthy range.
