Liver Function Test
This is a blood liver function test to check how well the liver is working. It can check for liver damage due to persistent misuse of alcohol and/or drugs.
This liver function test checks for:
- Gamma-GT: this is high in people who drink excessive alcohol over a period of time
- Alkaline phosphatase
- Aspartate aminotransferase
- Alanine aminotransferase
- Total protein
This liver function test is often ordered in addition to tests to detect alcohol misuse such as CDT, or drug misuse. It can be done at the same time as doing other tests.
