The test measures:

  • ALT and AST levels indicate how inflamed the liver is.
  • ALP is an enzyme that can suggest liver disease.
  • GGT is a potential indicator of how much alcohol you consume.
  • Bilirubin can cause jaundice; a yellowing of the eyes and skin in liver disease.
  • Albumin is a protein that helps keep fluid pressures in the body stable and carries many substances in the body.
  • Clotting studies may suggest liver disease.
  • The level of urea – the waste product formed from the breakdown of proteins that is usually passed out in the urine, which can show your kidneys might not be working properly or that you are dehydrated.
  • Creatinine – a waste product which also can suggest that your kidneys may not be working properly.
  • Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) – which provides a guide to kidney function.
  • Certain dissolved salts – such as sodium, potassium, and chloride for which abnormal levels can suggest a kidney problem.
  • Complete Blood Count, evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia.
