Who should take the test?
The Liver and Kidney test is recommended when you want to monitor your most vital organs and want to ensure that your liver and kidneys are in good health.
As the largest organ in our body, our liver has 3 vital functions. It filters and detoxifies our blood, helps our digestion by producing bile and stores important vitamins and carbohydrates. At the same time, your kidneys remove wastes from the body and clean your bodily fluids. Every minute, about one liter enters the kidneys and is cleaned there, before flowing back into the body. Liver problems can be caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses, alcohol use, medications, and obesity. Abnormal kidney function can cause accumulation of waste products in the body, which can lead to fatigue, headaches, nausea, and more.
With our Liver and Kidney Test your status will be determined based on the following markers:
- Alanine-aminotransferase (ALT)
- Aspartate-aminotransferase (AST)
- Total Bilirubin (TBILI)
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Creatinine (CREAT)
How does it work?
You collect a dried blood spot sample from the comfort of your home, send it to our lab and will receive the lab results, including detailed information about your liver and kidney health markers.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After the analysis was conducted, you will receive a lab report with explanations about the analyzed markers as well as information about possible symptoms that can occur when there is an imbalance. Further to that, we always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
