Hepatic Function Blood Test

The Hepatic Function test (Liver Function Panel) is a common health screening that can help to identify conditions affecting the liver. This test is also used to monitor people who are being treated for liver disease.

The Hepatic Function Panel includes the following tests:

  • Alanine Amino Transferase (ALT): An enzyme produced by the liver which is typically elevated in cases of liver damage.
  • Aspartate Amino Transferase (AST): A liver enzyme which is typically elevated in cases of liver damage or Hepatitis.
  • Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP): An enzyme found in the liver and bones which is increased when there is liver or bone damage.
  • Protein, Total: A measure of albumin and all other proteins on the blood.
  • Albumin: The main protein produced by the liver.
  • Bilirubin, Total: Helps to identify conditions such as anemia , sickle cell, hepatitis, cirrhosis, alcohol and drug abuse.
  • Bilirubin Direct: Used in conjunction with Total Bilirubin to aid in the diagnosis of liver disorders.

A Hepatic Function Panel is usually ordered as a general health screening. It can also be ordered when someone is experiencing symptoms associated with liver disorders or has risk factors for Liver Disease. Risk factors can include heavy alcohol use, diabetes, possible exposure to Hepatitis viruses, a family history of liver disease, high blood pressure, and taking medications which may damage the liver.

Customers who are looking for a more comprehensive screening can also order the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP). The CMP includes all of the components of a Hepatic Function Test except for Bilirubin Direct.

Turnaround time for the Hepatic Function test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Hepatic Function test has no fasting requirements.
