    Why Use

    Patients in whom fatty liver (e.g. alcoholic fatty liver, NAFLD, NASH) is suspected.

    • Among liver enzymes, GGT was the only independent predictor of fatty liver in the original study, though it is not always part of routine liver enzymes across settings.
    • Originally derived in a Northern Italian cohort but has since been validated in multiple cohorts including North America, China, and the UK.
    • May help in patient selection for ultrasound or liver biopsy.
    • Validated in multiple external cohorts.
    • May be used in the research setting to identify patients for planning observational or interventional studies.
