The LFT includes levels of enzymes, such as alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST), as well as the levels of bilirubin and albumin.

If your LFT results are abnormal, your doctor may order further testing to investigate the cause. It is essential to discuss your LFT results with your doctor to understand what they mean and whether further testing is required.

How To Prepare For Liver Function Blood Test?

It is advised to avoid eating fatty or fried foods for at least 24-48 hours before the healthcare provider can collect your blood for the Liver Function Test.

It is also best to avoid drinking alcohol or using drugs at least 48 hours before the test, as it may hamper the test result’s accuracy; instead, drink plenty of water before the test to help with blood circulation and hence make it easier to draw blood for the lab technician.However, if you are currently taking any medications, it is important to let the provider know this before the test. They might request you stop taking certain medications before the test for accurate results.

What Happens During LFT Testing?

A Liver Function Blood Test only takes a few minutes.

  1. As per the scheduled time of the blood test, a Lab Technician who usually takes blood samples will arrive.
  2. A thin needle will be used to draw blood from your arm’s vein.
  3. The needle might cause a mild pinch and some discomfort.
  4. The lab technician then fills a collection tube with blood and then removes the needle from the skin.
  5. They place a small bandage on the arm
  6. These samples are then sent over to the laboratory for analysis of the levels of certain compounds, including Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), and Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT)

Please note there might be slight pain or bruising at the spot of insertion, but most of the symptoms go away quickly.

FAQs around Liver Function Test (LFT Test)

Yes, the Liver Function Test can be taken at home. But it is advised to get an LFT blood test done in a healthcare facility for better accuracy of the results.

Fasting is not required for a Liver Function Test, but it is advised to avoid fatty or fried food items 24-48 hours before the test.

Liver function tests (LFTs) can help identify a variety of liver conditions, including fatty liver disease. But an LFT Blood Test alone cannot help properly diagnose fatty liver, and hence further testing is required to be certain.

Liver tests are used to analyze the levels of certain enzymes and proteins in your bloodstream. Levels that are higher or lower than the normal range can indicate Liver problems. Some common tests for liver disease include Bilirubin, Liver enzymes test, Albumin and total protein, L-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and Prothrombin time (PT).

Abnormal liver function tests (LFTs) can indicate liver disease or damage. Some common tests for abnormal liver disease include Bilirubin, Liver enzymes test, Albumin and total protein, L-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and Prothrombin time (PT). It is important to note that abnormal results do not always indicate liver disease, as other factors, such as medications and alcohol can affect the liver function test result.

A blood sample is all that's required for an LFT Test. There is no special preparation required before getting an LFT Blood Test.
