Function

Your liver breaks down the components of foods, drinks and medications that make their way into the bloodstream from the gut. Macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) from your diet are converted into energy or new cellular structures. Other chemicals, good or bad, can be detoxified by the liver as they pass through your body. Some chemicals put a lot more strain on your liver than others, and repeated exposure to the toxic substances, such as alcohol, can cause damage to the liver.

Biomarkers tested by myLeber Check

  • GGT
  • ALP
  • ALT
  • Albumin
  • Bilirubin

GGT (gamma-glutamyltransferase) is an enzyme important for your liver. GGT helps the liver metabolise amino acids, and detoxifies drugs. High blood GGT levels, along with ALP and ALT, can be a sign of liver damage, possibly from alcohol abuse.

ALP (alkaline phosphatase) is an enzyme found in the liver, bile and bone. Your liver uses ALP to metabolise nutrients, and bone needs ALP for growth. ALP is a biomarker for liver and bone damage, and with ALT and GGT can provide insight into liver health

ALT (alanine aminotransferase) is an enzyme found in the liver. The liver metabolises and stores nutrients, and digests toxins. ALT is important to liver function through its role in protein metabolism. ALT is a useful biomarker for liver cell injury.

Albumin is a protein that is abundantly present in your bloodstream. It maintains fluid distribution in body tissue, and transports fats, cholesterol, drugs, vitamins, toxins and metals. Abnormal albumin levels are caused by poor liver or kidney function.

Bilirubin is a compound produced from the breakdown of red blood cells, a process that primarily occurs in the liver. Bilirubin is one of several biomarkers used to asses abnormal liver function.

Frequently asked questions

Who should take this test?
We recommend this test for:
- People who are concerned about their liver health
- Those who want to take charge of their health and proactively prevent illness
What symptoms does it address?
Common indicators of non-optimal levels and deficiencies of the blood values covered by this test include:
- abdominal pain
- fatigue
- yellowish skin
- swelling
- loss of appetite
How does it work?
After your test kit arrives in the mail - around 2-3 days after completing your order - you'll take a few drops of blood from your fingertip and send us the sample in a postage pre-paid envelope. When our certified lab partner has completed the analysis - around 2 weeks - you'll receive an email with a link to a profile with your results. In your profile, you'll also find personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
What does it test?
We analyse your blood values and determine whether your values are in their optimal ranges. Having values in these optimal ranges is the key to reaching peak health and performance. If a value is not optimal, we provide concrete nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to get you where your body needs to be.
What kind of results and recommendations will I get?
Our science team - consisting of molecular biologists, nutrition scientists, and doctors - maintains world-class algorithms for nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your blood values. Our recommendation engine delivers you the specific recommendations needed to improve your blood values and, more importantly, your health.
Why should healthy people do a blood test?
Blood values are not only important for early detection and prevention of risk factors and health problems. They can also show unexpected and less obvious deficiencies affecting performance and quality of daily life. The human body changes as it ages - therefore regular testing of blood values is strongly recommended.
Why should I pay for a blood test if I can get one for free from the doctor?
Lykon is not a replacement for a visit to the doctor. The blood tests done by your doctor are an absolute necessity for acute problems. However, besides the clinical blood values analysed by your doctor, there are a multitude of other parameters which are crucial for your health but not tested by your doctor. For example, Lykon tests the concentration of vitamins and mineral levels in your blood. Our recommendations - developed by our health experts - can never take the place of a doctor's advice, but can help you improve for instance your vitamin levels. In addition, the doctor compares your blood values with norm values for the population as a whole. As much of the population suffers from various deficiencies, much of the prescriptive power of these tests is lost. Lykon works with medical studies to define the optimal values for you, to help you achieve your maximum. Blood tests with this scope are not offered free of charge by your doctor - of course, there are tests for a more limited range of blood values which are not supported by public health insurance, but are nonetheless available from your doctor.
