Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hi. I had a blood test done which showed a Gamma GTP of 132 which I believe is high. Since then I have had a complete blood count done and all other blood results were normal and an abdominal scan which showed my liver to be normal but I'm still worried about my Gamma GTP result. Should I be?
Doctor :   Do you mean gamma glutamyl transferase
Doctor :   i mean glutamyl transpeptidse
User :   I'm not sure - the result just said Gamma GTP of 132. All other liver counts were fine
Doctor :   yeah it is the same
Doctor :   You should not be concerned about the single value
Doctor :   of LFT
Doctor :   all others are fine
Doctor :   along with Ultrasound
