    The liver is vital organ that is responsible for balancing the chemical levels in the blood. The organ also acts as a filter for the body that works by processing the blood and breaking down toxins and harmful substances. The liver performs more than 500 critical functions to keep the body healthy.

    Liver problems can impede the functioning of the organ, making it susceptible to diseases like liver cirrhosis and liver failure. Abnormalities can occur due to internal damage, infection, obesity and lifestyle factors. If left untreated for a long time, it can result in the scarring of the liver tissue causing end-stage liver disease. The condition develops over time, making quick detection challenging without liver tests.

    A liver test is a must if you experience the following symptoms:

    • Yellowish skin and white parts of the eye
    • Itchy skin
    • Swollen legs and ankles 
    • Pale colour of the stool
    • Unexplained loss of appetite 
    • Easy bruising 
    • Dark coloured urine
    • Abdominal pain 
    • Swelling in the abdomen

    In the fatty liver package testing, the overall health of the liver is assessed. The package involves 55 tests to detect the reduced performance of the organ comprising of:

    • Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) analysis: In this test, the levels of GGT enzyme are checked. High levels of GGT in the bloodstream can indicate liver damage.
    • Liver Function test package: This assay checks the proportions of different proteins and enzymes such as bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, globulin, A/G ratio etc.
    • Lipid profile: This assessment includes evaluating the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides as both are known to affect the risk of liver disease.
    • Renal profile/Renal function test: In this profile test, the liver's ability to synthesise elements is analysed, which includes an assessment of creatinine, urea, calcium, chloride etc.
    • Complete blood count: This test provides a complete picture of the damage to the liver cells through observation of blood cells such as MCV, MCH, leukocytes etc.
    • HBSAg/Australia antigen: This test identifies the presence of the detectable marker of hepatitis B infection causing liver damage.
    • Amylase - Serum: This test hints at the insufficient utilisation of amylase in the body by the liver, suggesting a liver disorder.
    • Vitamin B12: This assay determines the levels of vitamin B12, which is crucial for creating syntaxin 17, which prevents NASH progression. 
    • Lipase - Serum: This test measures the lipase protein levels in the blood, which increases with NASH. 
    • Constant monitoring of liver health is also important in patients suffering from obesity, alcohol addiction, and viral hepatitis. The chances of liver damage increase in patients with poor lifestyle and dietary habits with the progression of age. Additionally, chronic stress can also result in liver injury by damaging hepatic tissue.

It also assists with the prevention of inflammation and slowing down the progression of non-alcoholic fatty acid diseases and fibrosis. Deficiency of vitamin B12 is one of the major risk factors for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
    Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis is a kind of NAFLD in which the liver suffers from inflammation leading to fibrosis of the liver tissues. The main symptoms which indicate its presence are:  Mild pain in the abdomen Inflamed blood vessels  Enlarged spleen  Red coloured palms   Yellowed skin and sclera of the eyes  Fatigue
    The complete alcohol package test analyses the overall health of the liver, including the functioning and signs of damage. The main tests included in the assessment are:  Analysis of enzymes like GGT, lipase etc Lipid analysis Renal efficiency tests Blood count HBSAg antigen Vitamin B assessment
    The treatment of liver conditions depends on the severity of the disease, age and preference of the patient. Generally, the treatment comprises:  Lifestyle modifications, including alcohol cessation Medications Surgery  Liver transplant
