What is an Alanine AminoTransferase blood test?
An Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) blood test measures the levels of an enzyme called ALT in the blood. ALT is primarily found in the liver, and its levels increase when the liver is damaged or inflamed. Therefore, an ALT blood test is often used as a marker of liver function and damage.
The test can help diagnose liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fatty liver disease. ALT levels can also be elevated due to other factors such as alcohol consumption, obesity, and certain medications.
An ALT blood test is a simple and relatively inexpensive test that is recommended for individuals who have a history of liver disease or liver damage, those who consume alcohol excessively, and those who have risk factors for liver disease like obesity or diabetes.
