The association between an increased level of gamma-glutamyl transferase and systolic blood pressure in diabetic subjects.

Abstract

Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is an enzyme present in serum and on most cell surfaces and serves as an oxidative stress marker. Although serum GGT is associated with hypertension development, little data are available on the associations between GGT and hypertension among populations with diabetes mellitus (DM). Our aim was to investigate the potential… (More)
