If you opt for a consultation in which to have the test then you will be followed up with a telephone consultation to have the results explained to you.

If you opt for a phlebotomy appointment in which to have the test – then you will need to book a remote consultation to have the results of the test explained to you.

The liver function test at MUMS includes:
 
Bilirubin, ALT, AST, Total Protein, Alkaline Phos, Albumin Globulin, Gamma-GT.
 
A liver function test is one of a group of tests that check levels of certain enzymes and other proteins in your blood.
Some of the tests 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 does all kinds of work that’s crucial for your health. It helps break down food, clean your blood, make proteins, and store energy. If something goes wrong with it, you might have a number of symptoms, from yellow skin to slurred speech.
 
You might 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
  • Weakness or feeling very tired
  • Yellowish eyes or skin (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.
