Abstract

Up to now, the measurement of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) has been used in persons with a regular alcohol consumption of >60 g/ day; primarily due to aspects of insurance medicine, as its levels have an informative value even at 2 to 3 weeks after the discontinuation of consumption. Objective: In the literature concerning % CDT levels in individuals who used chemicals, medical drugs, food supplements and muscle-tissue increasing drugs there is scarce information, therefore these cases in this paper deserve interest. Case reports: The authors demonstrate the history and laboratory results of three cases. All of them were ethanol abstinent and they had used protein-containing food supplements for one or two months. The measurement of the % CDT showed elevated values. Conclusion: All the three bodybuilder individuals are healthy, alcohol abstinent. They had consumed muscle-tissue increasing food supplement for one or two months. The authors consider these high CDT values as consequences of an injury caused by exposition to the protein increasing food supplements.
