INFLUENCE OF AGE, ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND ABSTINENCE ON THE SENSITIVITY OF CARBOHYDRATE-DEFICIENT TRANSFERRIN, gamma-GLUTAMYLTRANSFERASE AND MEAN CORPUSCULAR VOLUME
Alcohol and Alcoholism
Duration of abstinence before blood test, alcohol consumption and age was examined in 177 male alcohol-dependent patients as factors influencing serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT), serum γ-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV). The strongest influence on all markers was the factor 'duration of abstinence before blood test'. In patients who had been abstinent for >4 days before the blood test, the markers had low sensitivities (GGT, 33%; CDT, 14%; MCV, 42%),doi:10.1093/alcalc/34.5.760 pmid:10528819 fatcat:xon66vjjkzhmxf372malowx7b4
