    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-glutamyl_transpeptidase

    Gamma-GT
    Gamma-glutamyl transferase or gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase

    It is found in many tissues (including the kidneys,bile duct,pancreas,gallbladder,spleen,heart,brain, and seminal vesicles), the most notable one being the liver, and has significance in medicine as a diagnostic marker.
    ...latent elevations in GGT are typically seen in patients with chronic viral hepatitis infections often taking 12 months or more to present.

    If its not high, a grave viral infection can be ruled out?

    Very interesting. Should be part of standard tests?
