Health Screening Tests

Is a test for elevated liver enzymes included in routine blood testing?

A Answers (1)

  • Liver enzymes are typically not included in routine blood testing. Ask your physician if he or she is specifically checking for elevated liver enzymes, or see if your laboratory report includes results for ALT and AST.

    It is recommended that your liver enzymes be tested at least once a year or as frequently as your doctor advises.
