Liver Function Tests (LFTs)

Posted in on

A simple blood test that shows how well your liver is functioning, and whether you have any active liver damage. There are a number of different liver enzymes that can be tested for. The main two (2) that look for whether the liver is inflamed are Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) and Aspartate Transaminase (AST). When these are high they indicate damaged caused by alcohol, drugs, chemicals or hepatitis.
