What can a liver blood test tell you?

Your liver is one of your body’s most essential organs. It helps eliminate waste, regulates your hormones, and converts food into energy. 

A liver blood test (formerly known as a liver function blood test) helps you learn how your diet and lifestyle affect your liver health. Plus, find out how to support your liver with personalised advice recommended by our GPs in a detailed report.

What's covered in this blood test?

Why has the name of this blood test changed?

A liver blood test was formerly known as a liver function test or LFT. The name has changed to reflect new guidance from the British Liver Trust, reporting that a liver blood test can’t diagnose or rule out liver disease when analysed on its own.

When doing this blood test, one of our reporting GPs will review your:

• previous liver blood test results (if you have any)

• health profile 

• body mass index (BMI)

• alcohol consumption

• diet
