A Liver function test is a blood test. We also offer lots of different value for money profiles with liver function testing included. Profiles are clusters of blood tests.

A liver function test checks enzymes and proteins in your blood.
Our clinicians look for enzymes that you’d find in your blood only when your liver is damaged or has a disease. Others check that the organ is working the way it should.

Your liver is an extremely important organ, and it is imperative that your liver health is good as it helps break down the foods that you eat, it keeps your blood clean, and it is the organ that stores energy and makes proteins.

When your liver is not working properly – you may have yellowing skin, or your speech may be slurred.
 
You may want to have this test to check for a liver disease such as hepatitis (an illness in which your liver swells and can cause serious issues). General symptoms of liver problems include:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or on-going tiredness all the time
  • Weakness or feeling very tired
  • Jaundice
  • Dark urine or light-colored poop (less common)
  • Swelling in your belly (less common)

 
Often, however, you don’t notice any symptoms.
 
You may wish to have this test at MUMS if you:

  • Drink heavily or have an alcohol use disorder
  • Have a family member with liver disease
  • Are very overweight, especially if you also have diabetes or high blood pressure
  • Take medicine that can harm your liver
  • Have gallbladder disease or anemia

 
The liver function test can also help MUMS clinicians learn whether an illness is getting worse or how well treatment is working.

If you want to see how well your liver is functioning, check for infection, hepatitis or scarring of the liver – call us today. You may wish to have a simple LFT at MUMS to determine the effect of certain medications – acne treatment for example.
