Liver Function Test

A liver function test (LFT), also called a hepatic function panel, is a blood test that measures the levels of enzymes and proteins excreted by your liver. While some of these tests measure how well the liver performs its normal functions, others measure enzymes that liver cells release during liver damage or disease. We provide best Sonography Test in Dhanori. 

Vital functions of liver are:

Deactivation of Toxic/Poison
  • The liver metabolizes and detoxifies drugs and substances that are harmful to the body.

Bile Production
  • The liver secretes bile juice into the intestine which helps in dissolving fat and other nutrients from food.

Warehouse of Glucose
  • It serves as a warehouse of glucose inside the body.

  • When there is excess glucose in the body it converts glucose into glycogen bundles and stores it.

  • When there is less glucose in the body it converts glycogen back into glucose.

Cholesterol Synthesis
  • Overall the fat in the body is managed by the liver. Once the liver is full of glycogen, the liver starts converting glycogen into fat which is then transported to the rest of the body via the blood.
Stores Critical Vitamins
  • The liver serves as a storage house for many critical vitamins like A, D, E, K and B12
  • Hormones and Enzymes Productions
  • It produces blood clotting factors, proteins, and enzymes, helps maintain hormone balances
