What does liver profile on a blood test request form mean?
This is a group of blood tests which all analyze liver function and tell how well your liver is doing its job. These tests usually include tests for bilirubin levels, and several liver enzymes.

Can you answer what the following bloodtests are for?. bone profile. urea and electrolytes. haemolysis check. thanks
There are quite a few different letters than can be written on ablood test request form. U&E is a term that is used to meanurine culture and sensitivity.
Full blood count.
The RHP on blood work is normally requested when the patient isundergoing dialysis. The RHP is theRecirculatory Hemoperfusionnumber
I'm not a doctor, but I do play one on TV. Seriously though --- In layman's terms... it really breaks down and shows what your bone profile is in your blood stream. Hope this …helps clarify everything. Good luck on the test.
When tests are done on your blood and the results show high levels in your liver what does that mean?
TG probably stands for triglycerides, which measure the cholesterol in the blood. However, if you're not sure, ask your doctor or nurse to go over your results with you. T…o the best of my knowledge TG in blood refers to the protein Thyroglobulin in the blood. See article at the following address: http:/www.thyca.org/thyroglobulin.htm.
Fasting blood sugar levels
No, it is a organ which would primarily remove all of the nutrients that have travelled from the Hepatic Portal vein (from the Small intestine to the Liver) and would clean al…l the immunities. Delivering them to the bladder to be mixed with water from the kidneys and the urea and excess water get released from the body when nature calls.
no. it flows through the veins and is made by the pulsing of the heart
The lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease . They are tests that have been shown to be good indicators …of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels or hardening of the arteries ( atherosclerois ). The lipid profile typically includes: . Total cholesterol . High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) - often called good cholesterol . Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) -often called bad cholesterol . Triglycerides . LDL Cholesterol Optimal: Less than 100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L) Near/above optimal: 100-129 mg/dL (2.59-3.34 mmol/L) Borderline high: 130-159 mg/dL (3.37-4.12 mmol/L) High: 160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L) Very high: Greater than 190 mg/dL (4.90 mmol/L) . Total Cholesterol Desirable: Less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L) Borderline high: 200-239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L) High: 240 mg/dL (6.22 mmol/L) or higher . HDL Cholesterol Low level, increased risk: Less than 40 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L) for men and less than 50 mg/dL (1.3 mmol/L) for women Average level, average risk: 40-50 mg/dL (1.0-1.3 mmol/L) for men and between 50-59 mg/dl (1.3-1.5 mmol/L) for women High level, less than average risk: 60 mg/dL (1.55 mmol/L) or higher for both men and women . Fasting Triglycerides Desirable: Less than 150 mg/dL (1.70 mmol/L) Borderline high: 150-199 mg/dL(1.7-2.2 mmol/L) High: 200-499 mg/dL (2.3-5.6 mmol/L) Very high: Greater than 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) . There is increasing interest in measuring triglycerides in people who have not fasted. The reason is that a non-fasting sample may be more representative of the "usual" circulating level of triglyceride since most of the day blood lipid levels reflect post-meal (post-prandial) levels rather than fasting levels. However, it is not yet certain how to interpret non-fasting levels for evaluating risk, so at present there is no change in the current recommendations for fasting prior to tests for lipid levels.
Liver enzymes in blood tests are ALT/SGPT (alanine aminotransferase) and AST/SGOT (aspartate aminotransferase).
LFTs for Liver Function Tests.
It Means- C-reactive protein. This test indicates if inflammation is present, due to any cause. Nowadays used as a marker when heart attack is suspected. (surprisingly, inflam…mation is the basis for atherosclerosis, the most common cause of heart attacks!)
You only need to tell your health care provider you'd like to be tested for STDs. You and your provider will discuss risk factors, medical history, immunization history, and t…he costs and benefits of the tests and decide which tests make sense for you. Blood tests can detect syphilis, HIV, and hepatitis B and C. Blood tests for antibodies to herpes are available, but they can't tell you if you have oral herpes (cold sores) or genital herpes, so most people don't find them useful.
Thyroid blood test are important. It can help diagnosis a thyroid condition, determine if your body is absorbing thyroid medication properly, and get a better understanding of… the overall health and function of this master gland; that produces hormones to regulate your metabolism and other body organs.
