Liver Function Test

Our liver function test is a cornerstone to assess your overall general health. Liver is the largest internal organ in your body and it is responsible for a plethora of functions.


Liver is the storage for glycogen, fat-soluble vitamins, iron, and copper, it activates enzymes, it is involved in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, hormones, drugs, bile production and more.


According to the British Liver Trust, deaths due to liver disease have increased by 400% since 1970.  Every day, over 40 people die from liver disease in the UK. Liver disease is the third leading cause of premature death in the UK. Indeed, most people with liver disease die aged between 18 to 65 years.


Even if you don’t drink alcohol, it is important that you assess the health of your liver as alcohol-related liver disease accounts only for 60% of all liver disease

90% of liver disease is preventable, therefore, an early diagnose is essential. Three out of four people are currently diagnosed at a late stage when it is too late for lifestyle changes or intervention.


That’s why we recommend our liver function test for a variety of conditions.
