Liver Function

Blood tests for liver function are used in monitoring the general state of health of the liver. Tests on liver function evaluate the levels of certain enzymes and proteins in your blood. Levels outside of healthy parameters can indicate liver problems. Patients with liver issues may have few, if any, physical symptoms.

S.G.P.T. (ALT)
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme found in the liver that helps your body metabolise protein. Like AST, ALT is normally present in blood at low levels. If the liver is injured or damaged, ALT is released from the liver resulting in increased levels of ALT in the bloodstream.

S.G.O.T. (AST)
S.G.O.T. (AST)

Aspartate transaminase (AST). AST is an enzyme that helps metabolize alanine, an amino acid. Like ALT, AST is normally present in your blood at low levels. Signs of increased AST levels in the bloodstream may indicate liver issues or muscle damage.

Alkaline Phosphatase
Alkaline Phosphatase

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme in the liver as well as bile ducts and bone. An ALP test can help to identify how well your liver - and also gall bladder - are functioning. High levels of ALP found in the bloodstream may indicate the following: liver damage or issues; a blocked bile duct; or potentially certain bone diseases.

Serum Bilirubin
Serum Bilirubin

Bilirubin is produced in the body when the haemoglobin protein in old red blood cells is broken down. It normally passes through the liver and is excreted in stool. Elevated levels of bilirubin found in the bloodstream are an indication of the liver's inability to deal with the creation of normal levels of bilirubin and as such is an indication of liver damage. Besides, increased production of bilirubin may be a result of premature breakdown of red blood cells.

Gamma GT
Gamma-glutamyltransferase

Gamma-glutamyltransferase (Gamma-GT). Elevated levels of Gamma-GT, an enzyme found in the bloodstream, is an indication of liver damage.

Total Protein
A Total Protein test analyses the concentration of protein - Albumin & Globulin - in your bloodstream. High or low levels of protein found in the blood can be an indicator of certain health conditions.

A/G Ratio
The A / G Ratio provides a ratio of albumin to globulin in the bloodstream. A normal A / G ratio usually falls between 1.0 - 2.0, with abnormal levels offering an indication of potential underlying health concerns including kidney issues, liver disorders, HIV / AIDS, inflammation-related disease, certain neoplasms (cancers) autoimmune disease or dehydration.
