Information About The Tests

Liver Function Test

A Liver Function Test (LFT) is a set of blood tests that assess the health and functionality of the liver. The liver plays a crucial role in various metabolic processes, detoxification, and the production of proteins necessary for bodily functions. LFTs help healthcare professionals evaluate liver function and identify any potential liver disorders or abnormalities.

  1. AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase)
  2. ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)
  3. Alk Phos (Alkaline Phosphatase)
  4. Gamma GT (Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase)
  5. Total Bilirubin
  6. Total Protein
  7. Albumin
  8. Globulin

These tests are often interpreted together, as abnormalities in one or more markers can provide valuable information about the overall health of the liver. It's important to note that while LFTs are useful in assessing liver function, they are not specific to a particular disease, and further investigation may be needed to determine the underlying cause of any abnormalities. Interpretation of LFT results should be done by healthcare professionals in the context of the individual's medical history and other diagnostic tests.
