Liver Function Tests

Liver Function Tests (LFTs) are a group of blood tests used to evaluate the function of the liver and detect liver damage or disease. These tests measure levels of various substances in the blood, such as liver enzymes, bilirubin, and albumin.

Some common liver function tests include:

  1. Alanine transaminase (ALT)
  2. Aspartate transaminase (AST)
  3. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
  4. Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)
  5. Bilirubin (total and direct)
  6. Albumin
  7. Prothrombin time (PT)

LFTs can help diagnose a range of liver conditions, such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fatty liver disease. They can also monitor the progression of liver disease and the effectiveness of treatment.
