Are you worried about your liver health?
The liver has a unique ability to regenerate but cannot withstand continuous damage. After all, it’s a vital organ and needs looking after for optimal health.
Some common reasons for developing liver disease in the UK are due to:
- Alcohol misuse – this costs the NHS around £2.7 billion per year
- Hepatitis B and C
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, primarily caused by obesity
How do you know if you have poor liver health?
Two enzymes of relevance are found in the liver; these are alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST). ALT is only found in the liver and AST is present in tissues, including the liver, heart, muscle, kidney and brain. If the liver is damaged, these enzyme proteins are released into the blood.
Finding out the health of your liver is simple with YorkTest’s LiverCheck test – a convenient finger-prick blood test for ALT and AST you can do at home which gives you an indicator of your overall liver health.
This reliable test delivers results within just 10 days and, following the expert analysis of your blood in their accredited laboratory, clear guidance and support literature is provided to help you reduce your risk.
Why is it important to take a LiverCheck?
YorkTest’s LiverCheck test provides a starting point for those concerned about their liver health. Some people may not be aware until damage is irreversible. YorkTest provides people with the information they may require in order to make important lifestyle changes to ultimately benefit their health in the long run.
