Liver Function Test

What is a Liver Function Test (LFT)?

Your liver is the largest internal organ in your body. It performs over 500 functions including breaking down and processing food, combatting infections and removing drugs and toxins. Better2Know Your Body’s LFT home test will assesses the overall health of your liver, by testing the levels of a wide range of markers which may indicate problems in or damage to your liver.

Signs of problems with the liver can include:

  • Nausea or vomiting,
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin),
  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Loss of appetite
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Itchy skin
  • Dark coloured urine or stools
  • Swelling of the ankles and/ or legs.

Why should I consider a Liver Function Test?

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms above, you should consider a Better2Know Your Body LFT home test as the starting point in investigating reasons for your symptoms and potential liver damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When will you send my kit to me?

If your order is placed before 4pm on a working day, then it will be sent the same day. Otherwise it will be sent on the next working day.

Q: Why do you need my email address?

Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready. We do not sell on or email you any other marketing materials, that is why we do not ask you to opt in or out of anything.

Q: Do I need to use my real name?

No, but the postman does need to know where to deliver the kit to. As long as you use a name that will get the kit to you, then we do not need your real name.

Q: What if I do not want to pay by card?

Our payment reference on your card will show up as "health screen" so it will not link your purchase to Better2Know. If you do not want to pay by card then we can also accept PayPal and cash. Please call our Patient Services Team to arrange payment.

Q: What does the kit packaging look like?

It will arrive in plain white envelope with your typed name and address on it.

Q: What if I have any more questions?

You can email Louise by replying to one of the emails she has sent to you. She will do her best to answer them.
