Diagnosing Liver Diseases

Diagnosis for Liver diseases has been advocated with the intention of intervening to halt its progression. Abnormal liver tests are those that measure synthesis of proteins made by the liver (albumin, clotting factors) or the liver's capacity to metabolize drugs. The impact of diagnosis of hepatitis C virus on quality of life is worse in patients aware of their viral status compared with individuals unaware of their viral status. Ultrasound-based transient elastography is the advanced technology more commonly used for the assessment of chronic liver diseases. It is also used to predict complications in patients with Liver cirrhosis.

Liver enzyme tests or liver function tests (LFTs) are a group of blood tests that detect inflammation and damage to the liver. They can also check how well the liver is working. Many tests can be performed on the liver, but most of them don’t measure the overall function of the liver. Liver enzyme testing includes ALT, AST, alkaline phosphatase; true liver function tests (LFTs) include PT, INR, albumin, and bilirubin. Liver function tests are used to measure specific enzymes and proteins in your blood. Depending on the test, either higher- or lower-than-normal levels of these enzymes or proteins can indicate a problem with your liver.
