Your test kit contains everything you need to collect your sample at home. Our instructions will guide you through it.
How to prepare for your test
Avoid heavy exercise 48 hours before doing your liver blood test. This includes anything that might make your muscles sore. We recommend this to avoid affecting your test results.
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
