Liver function tests also commonly called as LFT covers 11 test parameters known as Albumin, Bilirubin-Total, Direct & Indirect, SGOT (AST), SGPT (ALT), Alkaline Phosphatise (ALP), Protein-Total, Globulin, Albumin/Globulin Ratio& GGT (Gamma-Glut amyl Transferees)

LFT results are not diagnostic of a specific condition; they indicate that there may be a problem with the liver. In a person who does not have symptoms or identifiable risk factors, abnormal liver test results may indicate a temporary liver injury or reflect something that is happening elsewhere in the body – such as in the skeletal muscles, pancreas, or heart. It may also indicate early liver disease and the need for further testing and/or periodic monitoring.

Results of LFTs are usually evaluated together. Several sets of results from tests performed over a few days or weeks are often assessed together to determine if a pattern is present. Each person will have a unique set of test results that will typically change over time. A doctor evaluates the combination of liver test results to gain clues about the underlying condition. Often, further testing is necessary to determine what is causing the liver damage and/or disease.

If a person is taking drugs that may affect their liver, then abnormal test results may indicate a need to re-evaluate the dosage or choice of medication.

Liver tests can help determine if your liver is working correctly. The liver performs a number of vital bodily functions, such as:

  • removing contaminants from your blood
  • converting nutrients from the foods you eat
  • storing minerals and vitamins
  • regulating blood clotting
  • producing proteins, enzymes, and bile
  • making factors that fight infection
  • removing bacteria from your blood
  • processing substances that could harm your body
  • maintaining hormone balances

Problems with the liver can make a person very sick and can even be life-threatening.

Symptoms of a liver disorder include:

  • weakness
  • fatigue or loss of energy
  • weight loss
  • jaundice (yellow skin and eyes)
  • symptoms of nephritic syndrome (swelling around the eyes, belly, and legs)
  • discoloured bodily discharge (dark urine or light stools)
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • abdominal pain

Results of LFTs are usually evaluated together. Several sets of results from tests performed over a few days or weeks are often assessed together to determine if a pattern is present. Each person will have a unique set of test results that will typically change over time. A doctor evaluates the combination of liver test results to gain clues about the underlying condition. Often, further testing is necessary to determine what is causing the liver damage and/or disease.

The table below shows examples of some combinations of results that may be seen in certain types of liver conditions or diseases.

NABL stands for National Accreditation board for Testing and Caliberating Laboratories is the highest Quality Accreditating Body in India. It Annually Audits the Testing Labs for basic standard procedures which ensures quality of the test results. Some of these standard procedures include

  • Caliberation– Regular and timely Caliberation of  machines, the reagents of all tests, small instruments such as temperature recorder, microscope etc.
  • Controls – The Reagents of all tests under the NABL scope need to be tested at least once every day whether they are sensitive to both Positive /negative OR High/Low values. In simple words we need to test if our machine/reagents are able to detect normal and abnormal values with a corresponding predefined sample for us to be sure that our system is working fine and this we have to test everyday before we begin testing for real patients
  • Temperature logs – We have to maintain daily logs of temperature recordings every 2 hour of the room, storage refrigerators and more to be sure if an ambient temperature has been maintained for testing.
  • Customer Experience Process– We have to train our staff with an appropriate process of registring, handling, sampling and reporting of customers so that the whole process is easy and relaxed for the customers.

Contingency Training – The Staff has to be trained regarding contingency processes such as if a patient faints while drawing blood or if we encounter critically high value of some tests for which the patient or attendant need to be informed Immedietly. We have to maintain Documentation of such incidents with proper course of action for it to be audited by the NABL body.
