Liver & Kidney Function Check

Liver function tests are used to measure levels of specific enzymes and proteins in your blood.  Higher or lower than normal levels of these enzymes or proteins can indicate a problem with your liver which may require further investigation or treatment. Although it’s largely preventable, deaths from liver problems are increasing year-on-year in the UK. At least 1.8 million people are currently affected.

Healthy kidneys filter waste and extra water from your body through your urine, make red blood cells, keep your bones healthy and control the PH levels in your body.  When your kidneys fail, harmful wastes build up in your body, your blood pressure may rise, and your body can retain excess fluid.  This can lead to swollen ankles and shortness of breath caused by water in your lungs.

Dr Cullimore says “Your liver performs a number of important jobs in your body, like regulating blood clotting, converting nutrients from the food you eat, helping fight infection and maintaining hormone balances.  Contrary to popular belief, liver problems aren’t just a result of excessive alcohol consumption, but they can make you very ill and even lead to death. And up to two-thirds of people with kidney disease are unaware that they have this common condition. This is not unusual, since the disease usually presents no symptoms until it is at a serious stage when you may experience swollen ankles, shortness of breath, nausea and fatigue. But if it is discovered and treated early, mild or moderate kidney disease can often be treated to help slow down the damage caused or prevent the condition from getting worse – as with many conditions, early diagnosis is key. Although kidney disease can affect anyone, it’s worth noting that your risks increase if you have diabetes or high blood pressure, so if you have one of these conditions testing your kidney function is all the more important.  So if you’ve been feeling more tired than usual, noticed stomach pains or swelling, felt nauseous, are overweight or you simply want to check that your liver and kidneys are functioning as they should be, this test is a good place to start.”

All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.

Which readings are included?

This includes tests for Aspartate Transferase (AST), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphate (ALP), Gamma GT and Bilirubin. These enzymes are found in the liver and other vital organs. Levels of these enzymes are a common measure of your overall liver health and function. Abnormal levels can help indicate a range of health conditions including liver damage, bone disorders, blood disorders and jaundice.
This includes tests for Sodium, Urea and Creatinine. Abnormal levels can indicate impaired kidney function and fluid imbalance in your body. You’ll also get a reading for your eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate), used to ascertain how efficiently and effectively your kidneys are working.
You'll receive 5 key readings including LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) or “bad” cholesterol, HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) or “good” cholesterol, Triglycerides, Total cholesterol and HDL/total cholesterol ratio. Together, these readings are used to determine whether your cholesterol is too high. High cholesterol can dramatically increase your risk of serious health conditions like heart attack, stroke, peripheral arterial disease and atherosclerosis. Over 50% of UK adults have high cholesterol.
This type 2 diabetes check measures the level of glucose in your blood. Around half a million people in the UK have undiagnosed diabetes, and although it increases your risk of developing serious illnesses including cancer and heart disease, in many cases the condition can be treated or even reversed through diet and lifestyle changes.
Your general health markers include Albumin, Globulin, Protein and Iron. Abnormal levels of any of these can indicate liver and kidney disorders. Additionally, iron deficiency may indicate anaemia or an underlying problem with your stomach, bowel or kidneys.
This includes tests for calcium, corrected calcium and phosphate. Calcium is essential for healthy bone and muscle function. Phosphates are important for energy production, muscle and nerve function.
High levels of uric acid can indicate gout, a form of inflammatory arthritis which causes swelling of the joints. Low levels of uric acid can be a symptom of kidney or liver disease.
