Details
Who should take the test?

The Advanced Liver Test is recommended for individuals who want to ensure the optimal health of their liver. Given the liver’s critical roles in filtering and detoxifying blood, aiding digestion, and storing essential nutrients, anyone seeking to monitor their liver function and detect potential issues early would benefit from this comprehensive assessment.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

How is my privacy protected?

Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.

Test measures
For the Advanced Liver Test we analyze:
  • ALT
  • AST
  • TBILI
  • Albumin
ALT

Alanine-aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme primarily synthesized by the liver, aiding in crucial chemical reactions within the body. In healthy adults, low levels of ALT in the blood are typical, as higher concentrations are predominantly found within the liver.

Reduced ALT levels may signal a deficiency in vitamin B6. However, when the liver undergoes damage due to accidents or diseases, ALT is released into the bloodstream, leading to elevated levels. Increased ALT levels can also result from factors such as red blood cell damage, heat stroke, excessive vitamin A intake, bile duct blockage, heart issues, kidney damage, muscle injury, alcohol misuse, or certain medications like statins, aspirin, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, barbiturates, and narcotics.

Very high ALT levels, surpassing the reference range by 20 to 50-fold, often indicate significant liver damage, potentially stemming from acute hepatitis, liver cancer, or drug overdose. Symptoms of liver disease may include jaundice, nausea, fatigue, and weakness.

AST

Similar to ALT, aspartate-aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme present in the liver and other organs, typically not abundant in the bloodstream. However, when organs sustain damage, they release excess AST into the blood, detectable through our test. AST and ALT fulfill comparable roles within the body, thus, our tests incorporate both markers to provide a comprehensive assessment of organ health. Elevated levels of AST, akin to ALT, may indicate various conditions, with liver disease being the most common. Additionally, factors such as pregnancy and strenuous exercise can lead to increased AST levels.

TBILI

Bilirubin, a yellow pigment formed during the natural breakdown of red blood cells, plays a crucial role in bodily processes. After red blood cells complete their life cycle, they decompose, releasing bilirubin as one of their components. This bilirubin then travels through the bloodstream to the liver, where it is eventually excreted via bile. Our lab test evaluates Total Bilirubin (TBILI) levels in the blood, encompassing both direct and indirect bilirubin measurements.

While certain factors like vitamin C supplements can decrease TBILI levels, low TBILI levels are typically not a cause for alarm. Conversely, elevated TBILI levels often signify a blockage or liver-related ailment affecting the bile ducts or gallbladder. Conditions such as viral hepatitis, liver cancer, and alcoholic liver disease can lead to heightened TBILI levels, while blockages commonly arise from gallstones, tumors, or scarring.

Albumin

Albumin, a crucial protein synthesized by the liver, plays multiple vital roles in the body’s physiology. It facilitates the maintenance of osmotic pressure essential for proper fluid distribution and acts as a carrier for hormones, vitamins, and drugs, while also aiding in tissue repair and growth.

While high albumin levels (hyperalbuminemia) are uncommon and generally not concerning, they may result from conditions like dehydration, where blood plasma volume decreases, leading to a relative increase in albumin concentration. Addressing the underlying cause of dehydration typically forms the focus of treatment.

Conversely, low albumin levels (hypoalbuminemia) are more prevalent and may indicate various health issues. Liver diseases such as hepatitis or cirrhosis, where albumin production is impaired, are common causes. Other contributing factors include chronic kidney disease, malnutrition, or malabsorption. Conditions like severe burns, infections, or chronic inflammatory diseases can also lead to decreased albumin levels, resulting in symptoms like edema, fatigue, and weakness.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What does the Advanced Liver Test measure?

The test evaluates essential indicators of liver health, including ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase), AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase), TBILI (Total Bilirubin), and Albumin.

Why is it important to monitor liver function?

Monitoring liver function is crucial for detecting potential issues early and maintaining overall health. The liver plays a vital role in detoxification, metabolism, and nutrient storage, so any abnormalities in its function can have significant implications for overall well-being.

Who should consider taking the Advanced Liver Test?

Individuals who want to proactively monitor their liver health, especially those with risk factors such as alcohol consumption, obesity, viral hepatitis, or a family history of liver disease, can benefit from this test.

How often should the Advanced Liver Test be taken?

The frequency of testing may vary depending on individual health status and risk factors. It is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate testing schedule for your specific needs.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
