Important Medical Information

What Is a Liver Function Test (LFT)?
The liver has many functions including filtering toxins from the blood, regulating blood clotting factors, maintaining hormone and blood sugar levels, and producing enzymes and bile.

Liver function tests measure the levels of substances made by the liver and the levels of substances affected by how well liver cells are functioning.

To check your LFTs a finger prick blood test is taken by you at home using the kit provided.

Who is the Liver Home Test Suitable For?
The Liver Home Test is suitable for:

  • Anyone over the age of 18 years
Why Should I take a Liver Function Test?
The liver is an extremely important organ that is involved in many body functions. It can be useful to check that it is functioning efficiently. There are lots of things that can affect how our liver functions:

  • Obesity
  • Excess alcohol
  • Infections
  • Medications

Some of these can cause changes that can be reversed but may lead to permanent damage if action is not taken.

When Should I Seek Medical Advice?
If you have symptoms of liver disease we would recommend that you seek URGENT medical assessment. This service is NOT suitable for you.

Symptoms of liver disease include:

  • Pain or swelling in the abdomen
  • Urine that is dark in colour
  • Faeces that is pale/ light in colour
  • Jaundice (yellow skin & eyes)
  • Ankle/ leg swelling
  • Vomiting/ nausea
  • Unintentional weight loss
Why Should I Order A Liver And Cholesterol Home Test Together?
The Liver and Cholesterol Home Test will measure your blood cholesterol levels, triglycerides and liver function. These tests are related, as the liver is the primary producer of cholesterol, and elevated cholesterol levels negatively impact the health of your liver.

Knowing your liver function and cholesterol levels can help you understand whether or not you are at increased risk of heart or liver disease.

What If My Results Indicate a Health Issue?
If your tests reveal any abnormalities, you will be advised of this when your report is shared and we will let you know what the next appropriate steps are.

This may be to repeat the test in a few months or to speak with our GPs so that we can obtain a more detailed clinical history to help us determine an appropriate management plan.

Fortunately, elevated levels of cholesterol can be lowered by both dietary changes and medication. Taking action early can help ensure a healthier future.

How Do I Get My Results?
To protect your privacy, we will share your test results with you via your secure Webdoctor.ie Online Patient Portal. This is completely confidential and you can review your results at a time and place that suits you.

To view your results, simply log into your personal account using the “Login” button at the top of this page. Once you have entered your details, you will find your results and details of your previous treatments.

How Long Will It Take to Receive My Results?
It takes An Post up to 3 business days to deliver your home test to our partner lab for analysis. Once the lab receives the sample, it can take up to 5 business days to process the results and send them back to our doctors for review. We usually send the results to your secure patient portal the same day we receive them.
