However, tests are essential to ascertain the extent of damage caused to the person’s liver to determine the right course of treatment.
While some tests are associated with functionality, such as albumen, there are others that relate to cellular integrity, such as transaminase, while some others are linked to the biliary tract (gamma-glutamyl transferace and alkaline phosphate).
