  • Evaluating disease severity:¬†A liver profile can help determine the extent of illness in people who have known liver problems.
  • Monitoring:¬†Follow-up testing can provide information about how well treatment for liver problems is working. A liver profile can also monitor for side effects when people take medications that can impact liver health.

For this reason, there is not a universal standard for what is measured on a liver function tests. Nevertheless, some components of the test are more common. In most cases, a liver function tests includes the following measurements:

  • Aspartate aminotransferase¬†(AST): AST is a type of protein called an enzyme that is found in the liver as well as many muscles and organs.
  • Alanine aminotransferase¬†(ALT): ALT is an enzyme found primarily in the liver.
  • Alkaline phosphatase¬†(ALP): ALP is an enzyme found in the liver, bones, and other tissues in the body.
  • Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a yellow-colored waste product that is the result of normal breakdown of red blood cells. The liver works to remove bilirubin from the body.
  • Albumin: Albumin is a protein made by the liver that prevents fluids from leaking out of the bloodstream.

Additional measurements may be added to a liver panel if the doctor believes they can provide more information to evaluate your situation. These measures may be tested on an initial liver panel, or they may be included in repeat testing after an abnormal result on a previous test.

  • Gamma-glutamyl transferase¬†(GGT): GGT is an enzyme found in the liver and other organs.
  • Total protein:¬†This measures the sum of two kinds of protein in the blood known as albumin and globulin. The test may measure the relative levels of albumin and globulin, which is reported as the¬†A/G ratio.
  • Globulins:¬†Globulins are a class of proteins in the blood.
