Albumin

Albumin

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood. It keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels. It helps to nourish tissues; and carries hormones, vitamins, drugs, and ions like calcium throughout the body. Albumin is made in the liver so liver damage can reduce its level in the blood. The concentration of albumin also drops with a t...
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
High ALP levels can indicate that a person’s bile ducts are somehow partially or totally blocked or inflamed. Often, ALP is high in people who have cancer that has spread to the liver or the bones, and doctors can do further testing to see if this has happened. If a person with bone or liver cancer responds to treatment, ALP levels will d...
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
The ALT blood test detects liver damage. ALT results are usually measured alongside the results of other blood tests such as alkaline phosphatase (ALP), gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), to help determine which type of liver disease is present......
Ammonia

Ammonia

£60.00
Ex Tax: £60.00
Problems with ammonia processing can arise for several reasons, including: Rare inherited defects, Severe liver disease, Decreased blood flow to the liver and Reyea's syndrome - a rapidly developing condition that affects the blood, brain, and liver. In most cases, it follows and appears to be triggered by a viral infection. Children who ...
Anti Mitochondrial Antibodies, AMA

Anti Mitochondrial Antibodies, AMA

£55.00
Ex Tax: £55.00
This test measures whether antimitochondrial antibodies (AMA) are present in the blood. Moderate or high levels of AMA are strongly associated with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). PBC is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and scarring of the bile ducts inside the liver, causing continual liver damage and blockage of the bile...
AST

AST

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
AST is an enzyme found mostly in the heart and liver and to a lesser extent in muscle. When heart, liver or muscle cells are injured, they release AST into the bloodstream......
Bile Acid (Blood or Urine)

Bile Acid (Blood or Urine)

£35.00
Ex Tax: £35.00
Bile acids are synthesised in the liver as a breakdown product of cholesterol and secreted into the gall bladder. They are released into the small intestine where they solubilise dietary lipids such as cholesterol, aiding their absorption. Bile acids are reabsorbed from the blood and re-excreted into bile, passing through the liver severa...
Bilirubin (Urine)

Bilirubin (Urine)

£37.00
Ex Tax: £37.00
Raised levels of bilirubin in the blood indicate obstruction of the bile ducts or excessive destruction of red cells. Bilirubin is an orange-yellow pigment found in bile. The normal life-span of red blood cells in the circulation is 120 days. When they are broken down the haemoglobin, (whose role is to carry oxygen to the tissues) is conv...
