Biomarker table

Liver health

Bilirubin

Learn more

Bilirubin is a product of the breakdown of haemoglobin from red blood cells. It is removed from the body via the liver, stored and concentrated in the gallbladder and secreted into the bowel. It is removed from your body through urine and faeces. Bilirubin causes the yellowish colour you sometimes see in bruises, due to red blood cells breaking down underneath the skin.

ALP

Learn more

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found mainly in the liver and bones. Measuring it can indicate ongoing liver, gallbladder or bone disease.

ALT

Learn more

Alanine transferase (ALT) is an enzyme which is mostly found in the liver, but is also found in smaller amounts in the heart, muscles and the kidneys. If the liver is damaged, ALT is leaked into to bloodstream. As ALT is predominantly found in the liver, it is usually an accurate marker for liver inflammation and can indicate liver damage caused by alcohol, fatty liver, drugs or viruses (hepatitis).

Gamma GT

Learn more

Gamma GT, also known as gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT), is a liver enzyme which is raised in liver and bile duct diseases. It is used in conjunction with ALP to distinguish between bone or liver disease. Gamma GT is also used to diagnose alcohol abuse as it is raised in 75% of long term drinkers.

Hyaluronic acid

Learn more

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in virtually every tissue in the body but is found in high concentrations in the fluids of the eyes and joints. Hyaluronic Acid is also associated with liver function and liver fibrosis.

Proteins

Total protein

Learn more

Total Protein represents the sum of the proteins albumin and globulin in your blood. Albumin and globulin have a range of functions including keeping blood within vessels, transporting nutrients and fighting infection. Abnormal levels can indicate malnutrition as well as a liver or kidney disorder.

Albumin

Learn more

Albumin is a protein which is made mainly in the liver. It helps to exert the osmotic pressure which holds water within the blood. It also helps carry nutrients and medications and other substances through the blood and is important for tissue growth and healing. Albumin also carries hormones around the body, therefore measuring the amount of albumin in the blood can help us calculate how much hormone is available to your tissues.

Globulin

Learn more

Globulin is an umbrella term for a set of different proteins that the immune system and the liver produce. Certain globulins bind with haemoglobin while others transport metals, such as iron, in the blood. Additionally, there is a certain type of globulin known as an immunoglobulin, (another name for an antibody) which helps to fight infection in the body.

FAQs

What do raised GGT and ALT mean?

GGT can be raised through bile duct obstruction or, more commonly, through excessive alcohol consumption. ALT is thought to be specific to liver damage.

What's a Liver with Hyaluronic Acid Blood Test?

Our Liver with Hyaluronic Acid Blood Test gives you a comprehensive check of your liver enzymes, such as gamma GT (GGT), alanine transferase (ALT), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP). These markers can all be raised if the liver is inflamed or the biliary system is obstructed. This test also checks hyaluronic acid, which is an indicator of liver fibrosis.
