LIVER Screen Test
At-home liver function test (AST/ALT)
The liver is a major organ that plays a crucial role in our health. It helps break down food, purify the blood, produce protein, and store energy. Some of the causes for liver damage can be hepatitis, cirrhosis, and excess weight.
If you have liver damage, a number of symptoms may appear such as dark urine, light stools, lack of appetite, jaundice, bloating, weakness, feeling very tired.
There are all sorts of liver tests, but the most commonly used ones evaluate transaminase enzymes (ALT and AST). These enzymes are released into the blood by the liver in response to damage or disease.
In the event of liver damage, ALT and/or AST are released from the liver into the bloodstream. The Liver-Screen® rapid test detects these transaminases.
