Why Get Tested
A liver profile test is performed in the following cases:
• Screening for liver infections like hepatitis C
• Monitoring side effects of medications that can affect the liver
• Monitoring a preexisting liver condition and efficacy of treatment
• Measure the extent of liver scarring in case of cirrhosis
• While planning pregnancy
Do not eat or drink anything except water at least 9 to 12 hours before the test.
