The liver has an important role in digestion, protein production as well as detoxification of substances in your daily diet. Excessive alcohol and /or calorie consumption and viruses (hepatitis) are the main causes of liver disease causing inflammation, scarring, bile duct obstructions, clotting abnormalities, and liver dysfunction. Significant damage to the liver can cause jaundice (yellowing of the skin), dark urine, nausea, fatigue, and unexplained fluctuations of body weight. The Liver Health Screen can evaluate if your current lifestyle is affecting the wellbeing of your liver. If detected early, liver inflammation can be reversed before the damage becomes permanent. Therefore it is vital to have regular screens to assess the overall health of your liver.
The Liver Health Screen consists of the following tests:
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) – for detecting hepatitis
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) – for detecting a blockage in the bile ducts
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) – for detecting inflammation in the liver and other muscle tissues in the body
Bilirubin – assist in detecting and monitoring problems in the liver
Albumin – to assess whether the liver is making an adequate amount of this type of protein
Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) – a useful marker for detecting problems with the bile ducts
Total Protein – measures levels of proteins in the blood, including antibodies made to help fight off infections
Individuals who want to check the overall health of their liver, especially those with a personal history of excessive alcohol and drug consumption.
