Liver function tests measure a series of chemicals that relate to how the liver works. They include substances that the liver makes or are affected by the health of liver cells, chemicals that the liver processes or secretes, and hormones that the liver makes to do its job. Liver function tests are intended to give a picture of the 'condition' of the liver. It is a sensitive way to look for liver stress or liver damage, as it often shows this before any liver symptoms or problems appear. This means that the cause of liver stress or damage can be diagnosed and often reversed. Liver function tests are also used for monitoring in cases of hepatitis, injury, or known disease.
