What is the Liver Function test, and what does it test for?

Our at home liver function test helps you monitor the health and performance of your liver, through a simple at-home finger-prick collection test with online results available in 2 to 4 days from the time your sample is received at our lab.

What’s tested

    • Total Protein
    • Albumin
    • Globulin
    • Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)
    • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
    • Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)

    Our liver function test measures biomarkers associated with the health of your liver including protein levels in your blood and key enzymes that are produced by your liver.

    The liver performs essential functions like filtering our blood, processing and storing nutrients and vitamins, and metabolizing drugs and toxic substances to render them harmless. These liver function biomarkers can highlight normal or abnormal liver function. Results can be used to set a baseline for your liver health and adjust lifestyle habits to improve.

    You should take the test if you suspect you may be at risk of or have symptoms related to liver disease. Symptoms can include darker urine, lighter coloured stool, nausea, jaundice, abdominal swelling or pain. Risk factors for liver disease include exposure to hepatitis viruses, excessive alcohol or drugs consumption, or a family history of the condition.
