Elevated GGT and AP levels

  I've only found mention of elevated GGT(gamma-glutamytranferase)
  and AP(alkaline phosphatase) being an indication for congesitive
  heart failure.  I'm unable to find detailed information on this
  relationship.  What can the forum tell me on this subject or where
  can I find detailed information I need.

Dear Iris,
GGT and alkaline phosphatase are liver enzymes.  They can become elevated when there is blood pooling in the liver due to heart failure.  A good cardiology textbook such as Topol
