What is a liver function blood test?
The liver blood test is one of the most commonly performed tests by doctors and will let you know how well your liver is working.
The liver is a very active organ. It is involved in digestion, the removal of waste products, and the processing of medications and toxins, as well as being part of the immune system and hormonal system. It is a very resilient organ and will continue to function even if quite significantly damaged. Because of this, symptoms of liver disease often don’t appear until the disease is well advanced.
The liver can be damaged by lots of different things including alcohol, illness, drugs and medication but possibly the most common threat to our livers is ‘fatty liver disease’ caused by an unhealthy lifestyle.
A blood test for liver function measures:
- A number of different liver enzymes
- The levels of protein produced by the liver
- Levels of bilirubin, which is a waste product produced by the liver
Taken together, these tests give an accurate impression of how well your liver is functioning and will look for early signs of liver damage. Caught early, liver disease can often be reversed.
With your blood test liver function results explained in our results, your GP can use the info to perform a calculation known as the Fib-4 calculation. If you have abnormal liver tests, this calculation will give you more information as to whether the liver has any scarring or permanent damage.
