Liver Function Tests
Liver function tests (LFT), also referred to as liver function panel (LFP) or hepatic panel, are a set of blood tests done to check on the health of your liver. Changes in levels of liver-specific proteins, enzymes, and bilirubin indicate inflammation, injury, or conditions such as hepatitis, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis of the liver, and liver cancer.

- Indirect bilirubin
- Total protein
- Albumin globulin ratio
- Alkaline phosphatase
An electrolyte test or an Electrolyte panel is a blood test that measures key electrolytes i.e. Sodium (Na+), Potassium (K+), Chloride (Cl-), and Bicarbonate (or total CO2) in the body. It is generally done as a part of routine health checks to assess conditions such as high hypertension, heart failure, and liver and kidney diseases.
