Liver disease is increasingly common in the UK, with liver disease deaths doubling in the last 20 years. Around 1 in 5 people in the UK drink over the recommended limit, and of people receiving free liver scans 1 in 10 showed signs of liver damage, with 1 in 4 showing advanced liver damage.

The liver is an essential organ vital for detoxification, digestion, and metabolic processes. Liver disease can contribute to fatigue, loss of vitality, digestive issues, and metabolic imbalances.

Despite this increase in liver disease it is thought that 9 out of 10 fatal cases of liver disease could be prevented. Liver disease can be effectively treated if it is detected early.

This panel measures markers like Bilirubin, ALT, and AST, which can indicate liver cell damage, and others like Albumin, Globulin, and Total Protein, providing insight into the liver's functional protein-making capacity.

Identifying and addressing liver dysfunction can significantly improve symptoms and overall well-being as well as increase life expectancy and healthspan.

Markers Included In The Test

Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a waste product formed by the breakdown of red blood cells. High levels in the blood can suggest liver diseases like hepatitis, cirrhosis, or liver cancer, potentially leading to symptoms like fatigue, loss of appetite, and abdominal discomfort. Elevated bilirubin can also be seen in conditions with increased red blood cell breakdown, such as certain types of anemia.

ALT: Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme primarily found in the liver and kidneys. High levels of ALT in the blood can suggest liver damage, often before symptoms appear. This can be caused by conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, or liver cancer.

AST: AST, or Aspartate Aminotransferase, is an enzyme found in cells throughout the body but mostly in the liver and heart. Elevated AST levels can indicate liver damage or disease, even before symptoms like jaundice, abdominal pain, or fatigue appear. Therefore, monitoring AST levels can provide early detection of potential liver problems, enabling timely medical intervention.

Total Protein: Total Protein measures all proteins in your blood, including albumin and globulin. It can provide insights into your nutritional status and overall health. Low levels may indicate malnutrition or liver disease, while high levels might suggest dehydration or conditions that cause inflammation, such as infections or autoimmune diseases.

Alkaline Phosphatase: Alkaline Phosphatase (Alk Phos) is an enzyme found in several tissues throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the liver, bile ducts, and bone. High levels of Alk Phos in the blood may indicate liver disease or damage, bile duct obstructions, or bone disorders such as osteoporosis or healing fractures. On the other hand, unusually low levels might suggest malnutrition or certain genetic disorders.

Albumin: Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood, playing a vital role in maintaining fluid balance in the body and transporting various substances, including hormones, vitamins, and drugs. Low levels of albumin can suggest liver disease, kidney disease, or conditions causing malnutrition or malabsorption.

Globulin: Globulins are a group of proteins in your blood that serve various functions, including fighting infection (immunoglobulins), transporting hormones and minerals, and promoting blood clotting. High levels can indicate infection, autoimmune diseases, liver disease, or certain types of cancer. Conversely, low levels may suggest problems with the immune system, a nutritional deficiency, or liver or kidney disease.

Gamma-GT: Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is an enzyme found in many organs, but it is most abundant in the liver. High levels of GGT in the blood can indicate liver or bile duct damage. It's often used to help diagnose and monitor liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis. Elevated GGT levels can also result from excessive alcohol consumption or the use of certain medications.
