What is liver function testing?
Also known as a hepatic function panel, liver function testing will check to see how well the liver is operating. There are a number of tests that can be done on the liver to diagnose, treat, and monitor various health conditions and diseases. One blood test can be done to check for a variety of elements related to liver health. The measurements taken in this panel will include:
- Total protein count
- Albumin (a liver-specific protein) levels
- Liver enzyme counts for alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate transaminase, and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase
- Bilirubin levels
- Clotting time and prothrombin levels
Abnormal results in a liver function test panel will require follow-up to find a cause for the imbalance or abnormalities, which may include further testing or review of additional symptoms that could determine a cause.
