    The liver is the largest organ in the human body that performs multiple essential biological functions. The organ helps flush out toxins from the body. It also metabolizes nutrients such as proteins, fat, and carbohydrates and stores glycogens and vitamins to give you the necessary energy when required.

    If your liver isn’t functioning normally, your doctor may order a liver health test, also known as a liver function test (LFT) or fatty liver test. The test helps determine the health and function of the organ by measuring the levels of bilirubin, liver enzymes and proteins in the blood. It can also monitor the progression of any pre-existing liver disease and determine the effectiveness of a treatment.

    Based on the test results, if your proteins and enzyme levels are too high or too low, it can indicate a liver ailment. Generally, the normal liver function test is recommended:

    To confirm the presence of any liver damage or infections like hepatitis B or hepatitis C, especially if you believe you have been exposed to the virus

    To examine the side effects of ongoing treatment and medications, including:

    • Statins
    • NSAIDs
    • Antiseizure medicines
    • Antibiotics
    • Tuberculosis drugs
    • If you notice symptoms of liver disorder
    • If you have a previous family history of liver ailments
    • To monitor the ongoing liver disease and to see if the treatment for the same is effective or not

    If you’re suffering from any of the following medical conditions:

    • Diabetes
    • Anaemia
    • High triglycerides
    • High blood pressure
    • Gallbladder disease
    • If you consume alcohol frequently

    Apollo 24/7 offers a comprehensive liver health test or fatty liver blood test with multiple sets of tests within:

    • Gamma Glutamyl Transferase (GGT): The test measures the GGT levels in blood. GGT is an enzyme found all over the body, specifically in the liver. If your liver is damaged or not functioning well, GGT may leak from the organ and into the bloodstream. This leads to higher than normal levels of GGT in the blood.
    • Vitamin B12: Vitamin B-12 is an essential micronutrient that impacts blood cell production, brain health and nerve functioning. If you notice that you're struggling to maintain your balance, getting confused and weak, losing appetite and feel tingling in your limbs, it could be due to abnormal vitamin B12 levels. If the test indicates high B12 levels, one of the reasons for it could be underlying liver disease. 
    • Complete blood count (CBC): The test checks the white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. If the levels are abnormal, it can signify some illness or infection, possibly in the liver or the spleen. A low platelet count can also mean that you have advanced liver fibrosis.
    • Lipid profile: A lipid profile is one of the most common blood tests to screen and monitor any cardiovascular troubles. It also keeps an eye on cholesterol levels. Unusual lipid levels can be a sign of cirrhosis or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
    • Liver Function test: This test measures several components like bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, protein, alkaline phosphatase, albumin, globulin, and A/G ratio. All these will help to determine if you are suffering from any underlying liver damage or disease caused by viral hepatitis, drug injury, etc.
