Biomarkers/parameters tested & reported in this liver function blood test kit

    Total Protein
    Total Bilirubin
 This liver blood test will provide you with an overview of your liver health by measuring a broad range of proteins. Results of this test would give an insight into liver disease risk, such as fatty liver disease. An insight into liver health is also useful for fitness and training 

The capillary blood collection kit contains all what you need to collect blood and send to our laboratory for analysis. 

1. Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT):

  • Normal Range: 7 to 56 units per liter (U/L)
  • ALT is an enzyme found in liver cells. Elevated ALT levels in the blood may indicate liver damage or inflammation. ALT is especially sensitive to liver conditions, making it a key marker for hepatic health.

2. Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST):

  • Normal Range: 8 to 48 U/L
  • Similar to ALT, AST is an enzyme present in liver cells. Elevated AST levels can suggest liver damage, but AST is also found in other organs, such as the heart and muscles, making it less specific for liver conditions.

3. Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP):

  • Normal Range: 44 to 147 U/L
  • ALP is an enzyme present in the liver, bones, and other tissues. Elevated ALP levels may indicate liver or bone issues. ALP is particularly relevant when assessing conditions affecting the bile ducts.

4. Total Bilirubin:

  • Normal Range: 0.3 to 1.9 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL)
  • Bilirubin is a yellow pigment produced during the breakdown of red blood cells. Elevated bilirubin levels can indicate liver dysfunction or issues related to the processing of bilirubin.

5. Albumin:

  • Normal Range: 3.5 to 5.5 grams per deciliter (g/dL)
  • Albumin is a protein synthesized by the liver. Decreased albumin levels may indicate liver damage or conditions affecting protein synthesis.

6. Total Protein:

  • Normal Range: 6.0 to 8.3 g/dL
  • Total protein measures the overall amount of proteins in the blood, including albumin and other proteins. Abnormal levels may indicate liver dysfunction or other underlying health issues.

Significance of Liver Blood Tests: Decoding Abnormal Results

  1. Elevated ALT and AST:

    • High levels may suggest liver damage, inflammation, or hepatocellular injury. Elevated ALT is often considered more specific to liver conditions.
  2. Increased Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP):

    • Elevated ALP levels may indicate liver or bone issues. When liver-specific ALP is elevated, it could point to bile duct problems.
  3. Abnormal Bilirubin Levels:

    • High bilirubin levels may result from liver dysfunction or issues with the processing of bilirubin, leading to jaundice.
  4. Low Albumin and Total Protein:

    • Decreased levels may indicate liver damage, impaired protein synthesis, or malnutrition.

Common Indications for Liver Blood Tests:

  1. Screening for Liver Diseases:

    • Liver blood tests are often conducted as routine screenings to detect liver diseases or assess overall hepatic health.
  2. Monitoring Liver Conditions:

    • Individuals with known liver conditions, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis, regularly undergo liver blood tests to monitor disease progression and treatment efficacy.
  3. Assessing Medication Effects:

    • Certain medications can impact the liver, and regular tests help monitor potential side effects.
  4. Diagnosing Symptoms:

    • Symptoms like jaundice, abdominal pain, or unexplained fatigue may prompt liver blood tests to identify the underlying cause.
