Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Bile acid tests measure the level of bile acids in your blood. Bile acids are made by your liver and help you digest fats. A high level of bile acids may mean that your liver is not working properly.

The bile acid test is used to diagnose various diseases, including:

-Cirrhosis: This is a condition in which the liver is damaged and cannot function properly. Bile acids build up in the blood, causing jaundice (yellowing of the skin) and other symptoms.

-Cholestasis: This is a condition in which the flow of bile is blocked. Bile acids build up in the blood, causing jaundice and other symptoms.

-Gallstones: These are hard deposits that can form in the gallbladder. They can block the flow of bile and cause pain.

The bile acid test measures the level of bile acids in the blood. A high level may be a sign of one of these diseases.

Most people do not need to have a bile acid test. However, your doctor may order this test if you have symptoms of liver disease, such as yellowing of your skin or eyes (jaundice), dark urine, fatigue, or abdominal pain. This test may also be ordered if you have had a liver transplant or if you are being considered for a liver transplant.

The normal range for bile acid tests is 2 to 4 mg/dL. Bile acids are produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder.

If you have a bile acid test, you will be asked to fast for 8 hours before the test. You will also be asked to not take any medications that can affect the results of the test, such as antacids or cholesterol-lowering drugs.

During the test, a small sample of blood will be taken from a vein in your arm. The blood will be sent to a lab for analysis.

Before having a bile acid test, your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medications that can affect the test results. These include:

-Cholesterol-lowering medications such as statins
-Fatty acid supplements
-Certain antacids

Fasting for a bile acid test is required because food and drink can affect the results of the test. If you have eaten or drunk anything other than water in the hours leading up to your test, it could skew the results.
