Gamma glutamyl transferase
(GGT) was higher in the immobilized muskoxen, though in general muskoxen had GGT levels that were markedly higher than those of domestic cattle (Prairie Diagnostic Services, unpubl.
A higher percentage of women had elevated gamma glutamyl transferase
levels compared with men, which may reflect women's greater sensitivity to liver damage caused by alcohol (Hill, 1984).
Effect of raw and g-irradiated dried Moringa oleifera leaves powder (ML) on alanine and aspartate transaminases (ALT and AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and gamma glutamyl transferase
(gGT) activity in the serum of As-fed rats.
Calcium, phosphorus, amylase, uric acid, gamma glutamyl transferase
, bile acids, glucose, creatine kinase (CK), total solids, cholesterol, triglycerides, and alkaline phosphatase were determined.
In addition, patients with fatty liver disease had higher median BMI, ALT level, insulin resistance (based on pre-metformin homeostatic assessment), and gamma glutamyl transferase
level, as well as a lower median fasting HDL cholesterol level, compared with women who did not have fatty liver disease.
BG elicited a significant increase in gamma glutamyl transferase
concentrations at 250 mg/kg.
The woman's values were aspartate amino transferase (ASAT) 48 IU/L (normal <26); alanine amino transferase (ALAT) 29 IU/L (normal <27); gamma glutamyl transferase
(g-GT) 32 IU/L (normal <200); and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) 517 IU/L (normal <250).
