A liver panel blood test, or one or more of its components, may be ordered when someone is at risk for liver dysfunction. Some examples include:

   People who have a history of known or possible exposure to hepatitis viruses

   People who are heavy drinkers

   Individuals whose families have a history of liver disease

   People who take drugs that might occasionally damage the liver

 

A liver panel blood test may be ordered when a person has signs and symptoms of liver disease. Some of these include:

   Weakness, fatigue

   Loss of appetite

   Nausea, vomiting

   Abdominal swelling and/or pain

   Jaundice

   Dark urine, light colored stool

   Itching (pruritus)

 

Usually no one single set of liver blood tests are used to make a diagnosis. Often, several liver panels will be ordered over a few days or weeks to determine if a pattern is present and to help determine the cause of the liver disorder.

When liver disease is detected, it may be monitored on a regular basis over time with the liver blood test panel or with one or more of its components. A liver panel may also be ordered regularly to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for the liver disorder. We recommend that you fast for 8 hours prior to giving your blood sample.
