Fatty Liver

54+ booked in last 3 days

Overview

Fatty liver, also known as hepatic steatosis, is a condition in which there is an excessive build-up of fat in the liver. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. This build-up of fat can occur in two forms, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD). NAFLD is caused by a buildup of fat in the liver not caused by excessive alcohol consumption, while AFLD is caused by excessive alcohol consumption. Symptoms of fatty liver can include fatigue, abdominal pain, and weight loss, however, many people with the condition do not experience any symptoms. Left untreated, fatty liver can lead to more serious conditions such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. Treatment options for fatty liver include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, weight loss and medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • A fatty liver profile is a group of blood tests that are used to detect and monitor the presence of fatty liver disease (also known as hepatic steatosis).
  • A fatty liver profile is useful in determining liver damage or inflammation.

 

It is important to note that fatty liver disease can be asymptomatic and even when symptoms are present, they are non-specific and can be mistaken for other conditions. Therefore, a fatty liver profile is used to confirm the diagnosis of fatty liver disease in high-risk individuals or to monitor the progression of the disease over time.

You should get the Fatty Liver Test done if you observe the following symptoms:

  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fatigue

Patient Preparation: 12-14 hrs fasting required 

Total Tests Included: 7 (Liver Function Maxi, Lipid Profile Maxi, CBC, HbA1C, FBS, HBsAg Screening, HCV Total)

The Fatty Liver Profile measures the following tests Liver Function Maxi, Lipid Profile Maxi, CBC, HbA1C, FBS, HBsAg Screening, HCV Total.

 

This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.

If a liver function test, lipid profile, complete blood count (CBC), HbA1C, fasting blood sugar (FBS), HBsAg screening, and HCV total test are all positive for fatty liver, it suggests that an individual has an excessive build-up of fat in their liver and may have alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

  • A liver function test (LFT) is a blood test that measures the levels of enzymes and proteins in the liver. Elevated levels of enzymes such as aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) can indicate liver damage or inflammation.
  • A lipid profile measures the levels of fats in the blood, including total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. High levels of triglycerides in the blood can be a risk factor for NAFLD.
  • CBC is used to measure the number and characteristics of blood cells. Elevated white blood cells count may indicate infection or inflammation.
  • HbA1C is a blood test that measures the average blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. High levels of HbA1C may indicate diabetes or prediabetes.
  • FBS (fasting blood sugar) is a blood test that measures the amount of glucose in the blood after an overnight fast. High levels of FBS may indicate diabetes or prediabetes.
  • HBsAg Screening is to detect hepatitis B virus infection, it is important to know because chronic hepatitis B infection can lead to liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
  • HCV Total test is to detect the presence of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the blood. Chronic hepatitis C infection can lead to liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
