Aim: To study the role of magnesium and gamma- glutamyl transferases in alcoholic liver disease. Objectives: (1) To estimate serum magnesium and serum glutamyl-transferases (GGT) in alcoholic liver disease. (2) To estimate liver enzymes Alanine Transaminases (ALT), Aspartate Transaminases (AST), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), and Total protein and Albumin in alcoholic liver disease. (3) To correlate serum magnesium with all liver enzymes. (4) To correlate serum GGT with all liver enzymes. Materials and Methods: All liver enzymes, serum magnesium, serum GGT, total protein and albumin were estimated in 50 alcoholic liver disease patients and 50 normal subjects on Trivitron Dirui autoanalyzer. Results: Significant difference was found between mean values of cases and controls in Mg, GGT, AST, ALT, Alkaline phosphatase, and Albumin (P<0.05). Positive correlation was found between Mg with GGT, ALT, Total proteins and Albumin. This indicates that the higher(lower) values of Mg are associated with higher(lower) values of GGT, ALT, Total proteins, and Albumin. But the result were not statistically significant.(P >0.05). Conclusion: Chronic alcoholic liver disease significantly elevates Gamma-glutamyl transferase. Hypomagnesemia is also seen in alcoholic liver disease. Gamma-glutamyltransferase has a significant relation with magnesium levels in alcoholic liver disease.
