What is the test for?

This is a custom blood test to measure if the liver is preforming normal functions, by measuring the levels of enzymes, proteins and other substances produced in the liver.

What's included in the test?

Biomarkers:

·         Total Bilirubin: Bilirubin can be found in bile and red blood cells. Total bilirubin tests can be used to diagnose and monitor liver diseases and some types of anaemia.

·         Alanine Transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and in smaller amounts in the heart, kidneys and muscles. It is released into the bloodstream during an injury to the liver, heart, kidneys and muscles and an abnormal level can be a sign of a problem with one of these organs.

·         Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and in smaller amounts in the heart and muscles. It is released into the bloodstream during an injury to the liver, heart and muscles and an abnormal level can be a sign of a problem with one of these organs

·         Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and bone. Abnormal levels of this enzyme can be a sign of liver or bone disease.

·         Total Protein is the combined total of all proteins in the blood stream (including albumin and globulin). Proteins have many important functions and measuring their levels can provide a sign can be helpful in identifying problems in their formation and distribution throughout the body

·         Albumin is a protein produced in the liver. It has many functions such as transporting hormones, vitamins and medications throughout the body. Albumin tests can be used to help diagnose and monitor diseases of the liver and kidney.

·         Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is an enzyme found mostly in the liver and in smaller amounts in the gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and kidney. It is important for the metabolism of drugs, alcohol and other toxins. GGT tests can be used to detect problems with metabolism such as excessive alcohol intake and problems with the organs where it is found.

·         Globulin is a protein produced in the liver. It has many functions and is important for blood clotting and fighting infections. Globulin tests can be used to diagnose illnesses of the liver and kidneys as well as autoimmune disorders.
