Liver Health Check Up Package in Aurangabad
A liver health check-up package is an important preventive measure to assess the overall health and functioning of the liver. Early identification of liver disease can help prevent complications and improve treatment outcomes. Liver function tests (LFTs) are blood tests that measure various substances in your blood that are produced or processed by the liver. These tests can help detect liver damage or disease and monitor the effectiveness of treatment.
Liver elastography is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses ultrasound to measure the stiffness of the liver. This can help detect liver fibrosis or cirrhosis, which are common complications of chronic liver disease. An increased build-up of fat in the liver can result in permanent damage to the liver, which can be reversed if detected early. Fat accumulation in the liver can cause inflammation, damage the liver and create scarring. Scarring can cause liver failure in severe cases. It is recommended that you undertake a liver check if you are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms such as nausea, itching, yellowing of the skin and eyes, lack of appetite, weakness, fatigue, weight loss, jaundice, dark-colored urine and vomiting.
This package comprises 12 Investigations + 1 Specialist Consultation. For more details, view the package details here. The package & the prices may vary based on location.
