LFTs - Liver Function Tests

Almost every patient admitted to hospital will have their liver function tested, along with a full blood count, urea and electrolytes, glucose, and probably CRP. A typical set of LFTS will include: Bilirubin - can show pre-hepatic, intra-hepatic and post-hepatic causes of jaundice. A patient won't necessarily be visibly jaundiced if bilirubin is raised, especially if the bilirubin is not grossly elevated.

Interventions for dialysis patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection | Cochrane

Hepatitis C is a disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) which spreads from person to person through blood contact which is a result of sharing drug needles, and other items contaminated with blood. This virus remains in the body for a long time and can affect the liver causing its slow destruction or cirrhosis and liver cancer. Infected people may have weakness, nausea, jaundice and lose weight. On blood tests they may have increase in liver enzymes and bilirubin.
