Test Description

Liver function tests help determine the health of your liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes, or bilirubin in your blood.

Symptoms of a liver disorder include: 

weakness

fatigue or loss of energy

weight loss

jaundice (yellow skin and eyes)

symptoms of nephritic syndrome (swelling around the eyes, belly, and legs)

discolored bodily discharge (dark urine or light stools)

nausea

vomiting

diarrhea

abdominal pain

Each liver disease will have its own specific treatment regimen. For example, hepatitis A requires supportive care to maintain hydration while the body's immune system fights and resolves the infection. Patients with gallstones may require surgery to remove the gallbladder. Other diseases may need long-term medical care to control and minimize the consequences of their disease. 

In those patients with large amounts of ascites fluid (fluid accumulated in the abdominal cavity), the excess fluid may have to be occasionally removed with a needle and syringe (paracentesis). Using local anesthetic, a needle is inserted through the abdominal wall and the fluid is withdrawn. The ascites fluid can spontaneously become infected and paracentesis also may be used as a diagnostic test looking for infection. Operations may be required to treat portal hypertension and minimize the risk of bleeding. Liver transplantation is the final option for patients whose livers have failed.

Test Method 1 : The test requires a blood sample, which is drawn through a needle from a vein in your arm. 

Report available : Turn around time is 24 hours. 

If detected early enough, acute liver failure caused by an overdose of acetaminophen can sometimes be treated and its effects reversed. Likewise, if a virus causes liver failure, supportive care can be given at a hospital to treat the symptoms until the virus runs its course. In these cases, the liver will sometimes recover on its own. 

For liver failure that is the result of long-term deterioration, the initial treatment goal may be to save whatever part of the liver is still functioning. If this is not possible, then a liver transplant is required. Fortunately, liver transplant is a common procedure that is often successful.
