Set 2: a fasting serum bile acid level greater than 3x the upper limit of normal (ULN) for age; a direct or conjugated bilirubin level greater than 2mg/dL; fat soluble vitamin deficiency without identifiable cause; a GGTP level greater than 3x ULN for age; intractable pruritus secondary to liver disease.
Para obtener los resultados, se compararon las pruebas de funcionalismo hepatico (TGO, TGP, GGTP y albumina) entre los sujetos en estudio (obesos-control) y luego se correlacionaron con variables antropometricas, bioquimicas, dieteticas y actividad fisica.
At the 100 mg/day dosage, however a 15% decline in ALT (P = 0.003) and a 20% decrease in GGTP (P = 0.008) occurred, though AST levels did not decline from baseline.
AF-DEs, including [gamma]-glutamyltranspeptidase (GGTP), aminopeptidase M (AMP), and the intestinal isoform of alkaline phosphatase (iALP) were assayed (3, 9).
(4,5) However, evidence exists that persistent alcohol abuse affects the severity of periodontal disease, when blood levels of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGTP), a liver enzyme indicator of alcohol consumption, were determined.
For hepatitis, the main diagnostic tools are liver function tests, which measure enzymes, such as aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT); alkaline phosphatase; gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGTP); and bilirubin, the pigment produced when the liver recycles red blood cells.
Objective methods to assess drinking include the use of breath-alcohol testing as well as measurement of liver enzyme levels, such as gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGTP).
Included in the Chem 25 panel were measurements of serum glucose, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, BUN to creatinine ratio, uric acid, sodium, sodium balance, potassium, chloride, carbon dioxide, calcium, phosphate, total protein, albumin, globulins, albumin to globulin ratio, total cholesterol, triglycerides, total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT, AST), creatine phosphokinase (CK, CPIO, lactate dehydrogenase (LD), iron, alanine aminotransferase (SGPT, ALT), gammaglutamyl transpeptidase (GGT, GGTP), and iron.
For this reason, it is often useful to measure another enzyme not found in these organs, either the 5'-nucleotidase (5'-NT) or the gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGTP), along with the alkaline phosphatase when the origin of the elevated alkaline phosphatase (normal < 115 IU/1) is not clear.
Lab testing not infrequently reveals abnormalities in AST, ALT, and GGTP. What can be done to enable liver detoxification.
