Bile Acids (Total) Blood Test

About this test

Bile acids are indicators of liver function.

Normally, the liver is very efficient at removing bile acids from the circulation. Bile acid levels do not normally drop due to liver disease, but if liver function is compromised, more bile acids appear in the blood.

The Bile Acids Profile will detect liver changes before the formation of more advanced signs of illness. This early sensitivity is very important because it allows for the possibility of treatment before irreversible damage is done.

The test will not provide a definitive diagnosis, rather an early confirmation that there is hepato-biliary deficiency. When jaundice becomes apparent the benefits of the test decline as a diagnostic test. It can however be used to monitor a response to treatment.
