Liver function tests (LFTs or LFs) are groups of blood tests that give information about the state of a patient's liver.
Test result A2 means patient having minor damage. These tests include prothrombin time (PT/INR), aPTT, albumin, bilirubin (direct and indirect), and others.
Liver transaminases (AST or SGOT and ALT or SGPT) are useful biomarkers of liver injury in a patient with some degree of intact liver function. Most liver diseases cause only mild symptoms initially, but these diseases must be detected early. Hepatic (liver) involvement in some diseases can be of crucial importance. This testing is performed on a patient's blood sample.
These tests can be used to detect the presence of liver disease, distinguish among different types of liver disorders, gauge the extent of known liver damage, and follow the response to treatment. Some or all of these measurements are also carried out (usually about twice a year for routine cases) on those individuals taking certain medications, such as anticonvulsants, to ensure the medications are not damaging the person's liver.
It is carried out at Sun Diagnostic Laboratory , Jayanagar with perfection without any margin of errors.
