Did you know?
The liver is the largest solid organ in the body, weighing around 1.8 kg in men and 1.3 kg in women!
Decode your sample in 3 steps.
1. Order your kit
Choose the test which suits you best and order online. There are lots of different delivery options to suit how urgently you need the test. Choose the option which suits you best at checkout. If you order before 3pm your order will be dispatched on the same day.
2. Send your sample
Once you receive your kit, register your barcode and take the sample by following the instruction manual. We also have videos available to make the process easier. Place the sample in the package and send off to the lab. Check out more on the Shipment & Returns page.
3. Download your reports
Your results will be processed within 48 hours from the time they are received by the lab. You will get a notification to your email once the report is ready! Then you can access the report and even book an appointment with one of our partners if you need more information.
The liver is responsible for removing potentially harmful things from your body, or transforming them into something that your body can use and benefit from. Find out how well your liver breaks these down and keeps your body balanced through this test.
Albumin is a protein made by your liver. It's the most abundant protein in the blood plasma, accounting for 55-60% of the measured serum protein. Albumin helps keep fluids in your bloodstream so it does not leak into other tissues. It also helps transport vitamins, hormones, and enzymes.
Globulins are a group of proteins in your blood that are produced in the liver by your immune system. Globulins are important in liver function, blood clotting and play a big role in fighting infections. There are four main types of globulins: alpha 1, alpha 2, beta and gamma. Together with albumin, globulins make up a large portion of the proteins in your blood.
Albumin-Globulin ratio (A/G ratio)
The A/G ratio checks the amount of albumin you have compared to globulin. Normally, the A/G ratio is slightly higher than 1.
Proteins are essential building blocks of all cells and tissues. A total protein test is used as a general measure of all proteins in the plasma portion of your blood. Proteins are essential for body growth, development, and health. They form the structural part of most organs and make up enzymes and hormones that regulate body functions.
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
ALP is an enzyme predominantly found in the liver and to a lesser extent in bone, intestines, kidneys, and white blood cells. ALP helps break down protein in the body and it exists in different forms, depending on where it originates.
Alanine Transaminase (ALT)
ALT is an enzyme made by liver cells. Like ALP, its function is to help the liver breaking down proteins to make them easier to absorb in the body. ALT also plays a key role in metabolism, the process by which food is turned into energy.
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
AST is an enzyme found in different parts of your body, such as liver, muscle, heart, kidney, brain, and red blood cells. Like other enzymes, AST helps trigger chemical reactions that your body needs to function properly.
GGT is an enzyme mainly found in the liver. It helps transport and move molecules around the body and supports the liver to metabolise drugs and other toxins.
Bilirubin is an orange-yellow pigment that is generated as a waste product of the regular destruction of red blood cells which occurs in the liver. This molecule is typically released as bile.
Kidneys further the detoxification by filtering the blood and transforming that waste into urine. It's important to always keep this organ in check as it ensures there is no toxin build up in your body — our test will show you how efficient your kidney function is through a series of biomarkers.
Potassium is a mineral found in the foods you eat. It is also an electrolyte as it conducts electrical impulses throughout the body. Potassium has different functions, including maintaining blood pressure, heart rhythm and nerve impulses.
Sodium, often referred to as salt, is found in nearly everything you eat and drink. Sodium occurs naturally in several foods, is often added to foods during the manufacturing process, and is used as a flavour enhancer for many foods. Sodium is necessary for your health. It plays a vital role in nerve and muscle function and helps your body maintain normal fluid balance.
Chloride is one of the components of salt used in cooking and other foods. It is also found in many chemicals and other substances in the body. Chloride is needed to keep the proper balance of body fluids, and it is an essential part of digestive fluid formed within the stomach lining.
When you breathe, you bring oxygen (O2) into your lungs and release carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide in your blood is present in three forms: carbonic acid (H2CO3), CO2 dissolved in blood, and bicarbonate (HCO3-), the predominant form. So, bicarbonate is the major form of carbon dioxide in the blood. The kidneys are tight regulators of bicarbonate in the body, excreting it or reabsorbing it in response to acid-base imbalances.
Urea is the final breakdown product of the amino acids found in proteins. The urea is then released into the bloodstream and carried to the kidneys where it can be filtered out of the blood and excreted in the urine.
Creatinine is a waste product from the metabolism of creatine, an amino acid. It is produced in muscle when creatine is broken down to generate energy, and it is then filtered through the kidneys. Therefore, its rate of excretion from the bloodstream is directly related to how well your kidneys function.
