Liver Function Test (LFT)

Liver Function Test (LFT) Test Overview

Blood tests for liver function tests measure the proteins, enzymes, and bilirubin your liver produces. Different chemicals can signal various diseases by having high or low quantities. 

The liver is a large organ located in the upper right of the belly; the liver is essential for a variety of processes. For instance, it breaks down drugs and alcohol, filters hazardous compounds, stores vitamins and minerals, and produces bile, proteins, and enzymes in addition to other functions. Liver Function Test (LFT) Tests look at proteins, enzymes, and other elements that reveal how efficiently the liver operates. They can demonstrate whether there is liver cell injury or an obstruction of the liver's blood supply.

The liver filters all blood that exits the stomach and intestines. The liver processes this blood, breaking down, balancing, and creating nutrients, as well as metabolising medications into forms that are easier for the rest of the body to use or are harmless.

bruises where the needle was put, but most symptoms will go away quickly.

Your liver function test results may be affected by specific meals and drugs. Before having your blood drawn, your doctor may likely instruct you to abstain from eating
and from taking certain drugs.

For an enlarged panel that measures enzymes and proteins, you can anticipate test
results in one to two business days, depending on the type of liver panel you order.
