The alanine aminotransferase test is a blood test that look for liver damage. Your liver does a lot of important things for you: It makes a liquid called bile that assists your body absorb food. Your body uses ALT to break down food into energy. Normally, ALT levels in the blood are low. Physicians typically give the ALT test along with other liver tests. Your physician may advise ALT if you have symptoms of liver disease or damage, such as: Stomach pain or swelling; Nausea; Vomiting; Yellow skin or eyes; Weakness; Extreme tiredness; Dark-colored urine; Light-colored poop; Itchy skin. You take medication that's recognized to cause liver damage. The ALT test can be done as part of a blood panel during a routine examination. If you've already been detected with liver disease, your doctor can use the ALT test to see exactly how well your therapy is functioning.
