At-home sample collection device for monitoring liver function. Laboratory results are provided within 5 days.
The liver plays a significant role in metabolism, digestion, detoxification and elimination of substances from the body. A liver function test can help diagnose and monitor liver disease or damage by looking at liver enzymes.
WHO & WHEN?
If you consume alcohol regularly or excessively from time to time, or both, it is a good idea to check the health of your liver. If your liver loses its ability to function properly, you are likely to experience:
- Loss of appetite
- Itchy skin
- Chronic fatigue
More serious liver damage will result in symptoms that can include:
- Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
- Vomiting blood
- Dark urine
- Dark, tarry stools
- Buildup of fluid in the legs (oedema) and abdomen (ascites)
This sample kit contains a finger-prick blood collection device, along with clear instructions. Samples collected at home are couriered to and tested at the BioSmart accredited pathology laboratory.
Blood is tested for:
- Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
- Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)
- Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)
- Gamma-Glutamyl transferase (GGT)
Your liver health report will come in an easy-to-understand format with a detailed breakdown of results, what they mean and your next steps.
