BACKGROUND The application of biochemical markers to detect heavy alcohol use in women has shown disappointing results until now. We evaluated carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) by the CDTect method and gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) in a large cohort of alcohol-using perimenopausal women studied primarily for osteoporosis. METHODS CDT and GGT were measured in 431 women aged 46 to 54 years, who were selected from a large cohort (n = 8503) of pre-, peri-, and postmenopausal women. Their… CONTINUE READING
