What is the Liver Function test?
These biomarkers (below) are monitored as they provide important information about the liver's ability to function properly. Total protein, albumin, and globulin levels give an indication of the liver's ability to produce and transport proteins in the body. GGT and ALT are markers of liver damage and inflammation, while ALP reflects the health of the bile ducts and bone metabolism.
What biomarkers are measured in this test?
- Protein - Total
- Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT)
- Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
- Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)
Who should take this test?
Patients who have a personal or family history of liver disease would benefit from this test. The test can also be useful as part of a general health screen. Patients with symptoms of liver disease or who drink excessive alcohol should see a doctor for a full clinical assessment.
Is there anything I need to know before taking this test?
If you are taking any medication or have any medical problems, discuss this test with a doctor before taking it. You do not need to fast for this test.
You must be at least 18 years old to use our testing services.
How often should I take this test?
Annual testing is recommended to monitor the overall health of the liver and detect any changes or potential issues early on. Having knowledge of one's health through regular testing can help in the management of any underlying conditions and promote overall well-being.
What could results out of range (abnormal) mean?
Abnormal test results may indicate liver damage or dysfunction and can provide important information for discussions with a healthcare provider. Elevated levels of ALT, AST, or GGT, or a decrease in total protein levels may indicate liver inflammation or damage. A doctor can provide further evaluation and management options.
What could results in range (normal) mean?
Normal test results generally indicate healthy liver function. However it is important to continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle and speak with a healthcare provider if there are any symptoms. Good test results can be motivational to fine-tune lifestyle changes such as maintaining a healthy diet and avoiding alcohol consumption.
How can I improve my results?
Keeping your liver healthy is important and this can be helped by making careful choices such as maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding alcohol consumption, managing stress, and avoiding exposure to toxins. Over the counter supplements and prescribed medication can also cause liver damage, so ensure your doctor is aware of any supplements or medicines that you are taking.
