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.

Liver Function

The liver is responsible for removing potentially harmful things from your body, or transforming them into something that body can use and benefit from. Find out how well your liver breaks these down and keeps your body balanced through our test.

Albumin

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.

Globulin

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.

Total protein

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)

Alkaline phosphatase 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.

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)

Alanine transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme made by cells in the liver. Measuring the level of ALT in the blood can help evaluate liver function or determine the underlying cause(s) of a liver problem. Protein called enzymes help the liver break down other proteins to make them easier to absorb in the body. ALT is one of these enzymes and it plays a key role in metabolism.

Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT)

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme that is present in various tissues of your body such as the liver, muscle, heart, kidney, brain and red blood cells. Like other enzymes, AST helps trigger chemical reactions that your body needs to function properly.

Bilirubin

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme that is present in various tissues of your body such as the liver, muscle, heart, kidney, brain and red blood cells. Like other enzymes, AST helps trigger chemical reactions that your body needs to function properly.

Kidney Function

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

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

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

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.

Bicarbonate

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. Bicarbonate is a negatively charged ion that is excreted and reabsorbed by your kidneys.

Urea

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

Creatinine is a waste product of creatine metabolism, an amino acid (building block of proteins) made by the liver and stored in the liver. Creatinine is produced in muscle when creatine is metabolised to generate energy. Creatinine is not reabsorbed or secreted, but is completely filtered through your kidneys. Thus, its rate of excretion from your bloodstream is directly related to how well your kidneys filter.

Glomerular filtration rate

Glomerular filtration is the first step in making urine. It is the process that your kidneys use to filter excess fluid and waste products out of the blood into the urine collecting tubules of the kidney, so they may be eliminated from your body.
