Levels of Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate Amino transferase (AST) and Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) in Hypertension.

Hypertension is very common in our country. The aim of our study was to find the levels of liver enzymes ALT, AST and GGT in normotensive pre hypertensive and hypertensive individuals. Patients were categorized into three groups – Group 1 Normotensive or Controls (n= 80), Group 2 Pre Hypertensive (n=64) and Group 3 Hypertensive (n=76). Values of ALT, AST and GGT were with in the normal reference range in all the three groups. No significant relation was found between ALT, AST and GGT in normal, pre hypertensive and hypertensive individuals.
