A liver panel is a group of tests that measure several different liver enzymes and proteins. It is done to help determine how well the liver is working.

  • These tests may be done to diagnose or monitor liver disease or determine if there has been any damage to the liver.
  • They can also be done to monitor the effects of certain medications, which can have toxic effects on the liver.

In an adult, the blood sample is usually taken by placing a needle in a vein in the arm. In some cases the sample may be taken by pricking a finger.

  • No special preparation is needed for this test.
  • Ask your healthcare provider if you need to stop taking any medicine before the test. Do not stop taking any medicine unless your healthcare provider tells you to do so.
  • This care path's costs do not include the charge to draw blood from a vein (venipuncture).
  • There will only be one charge to draw blood, even if multiple tests are being performed on the samples that are taken.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for these tests? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
