Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Liver Function Test is a blood test that measures various enzymes, proteins, and substances in your bloodstream to evaluate how well your liver is functioning. These tests provide valuable insights into the health of your liver and help identify any potential issues or abnormalities.

  1. One of the main uses of a liver function test is to detect any damage or disease affecting the liver. By measuring specific enzymes such as alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST), doctors can identify if there are elevated levels in your blood, which may indicate liver inflammation or injury.
  2. Additionally, LFTs can help diagnose conditions like hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, and even certain types of cancer that affect the liver.
  3. Liver function tests are not only useful for diagnosing liver disorders but also for monitoring existing conditions.

One such marker is Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), which typically has a reference range between 7-55 units per liter (U/L). Another marker, Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST), usually ranges from 8-48 U/L.

By regularly monitoring your LFT levels and seeking medical advice if you notice any abnormal results or experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, or changes in appetite or digestion, you can take proactive steps towards maintaining a healthy liver. Consult with your healthcare provider for regular check-ups like LFT test

Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme found in almost all cells of the body. It plays a crucial role in converting glucose into energy, specifically during times when oxygen supply is limited. The LDH test measures the levels of this enzyme in your blood.

One of the main uses of the LDH test is to assess tissue damage or injury. When cells are damaged or destroyed, they release LDH into the bloodstream, causing elevated levels. 

Monitoring cancer treatment effectiveness is another important application for this test.

  1. If your LDH levels are high, it may suggest tissue damage or inflammation. There are several possible causes for this elevation. For example, a heart attack can cause LDH levels to rise due to damage to cardiac muscle cells. Liver disease can also lead to increased LDH levels as a result of liver cell damage.
  2. Furthermore, certain cancers such as lymphoma or leukemia may cause elevated LDH levels.
  3. Elevated LDH levels may indicate tissue damage or inflammation caused by various conditions such as heart attacks, liver diseases, certain cancers like lymphoma or leukemia, and infections like pneumonia or viral hepatitis.

The normal range for LDH can vary slightly depending on factors such as age and gender. Infant: 160 to 450 units per liter, 1 to 15 years old: 143 to 370 units/L for children. Older than 16 years: 105 to 233 units/L. Generally speaking, the standard range falls between 140-280 units per liter (U/L).
