- •We evaluated the association between liver enzymes and stroke risk in a cohort study.
- •Our data provide further evidence for a link between GGT and stroke risk.
- •Higher ALT levels were related to an increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke.
- •Higher ALT levels were related to a decreased risk of ischemic stroke.
- •The different relationships between ALT and subtypes of stroke need clarification.
