A routine checkup of your liver would be a solution to many of your diseases. Liver Function Tests (LFT) analyses the health and functioning of the liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes (bilirubin) in your blood.
Why I need a LFT ?
LFT always help to determine the working of the liver. The liver performs a number of vital bodily functions, such as:
removing contaminants from your blood
converting nutrients from the foods you eat
storing minerals and vitamins
regulating blood clotting
producing proteins, enzymes, and bile
making factors that fight infection
removing bacteria from your blood
processing substances that could harm your body
maintaining hormone balances
Normally, LFT is suggesting for :
to screen for liver infections (e.g. hepatitis C)
to monitor the side effect of certain medications known to affect the liver
to monitor the disease( if already a liver disease exists) and how a particular treatment is working.
to measure the degree of scarring(Cirrhosis) on the liver
to check the symptoms of a liver disorder
fatigue or loss of energy
jaundice (yellow skin and eyes)
symptoms of nephritic syndrome (swelling around the eyes, belly, and legs)
discolored bodily discharge (dark urine or light stools)
