How to Maintain a Healthy LiverR.T. Clement, MDRichard Clement Nutritionbewellhomeo@cs.comwww.web-outpatients.com
Functional Liver Dysfunction In a “healthy population” 40% of men and 20% of women have functional liver dysfunction. Common liver function tests are misleading because most tests used in clinical practice measure hepato-cellular damage not function.
Specific tests may be useful Aminopyrine breath test assessing microsomal liver function The galactose elimination test assessing the cytosolic liver function The sorbitol clearance test assessing the liver plasma flow The indocyanine green clearance test assesing the liver perfusion The lidocaine Clearance test (Cytochrome P 450)• But they are very rarely used
Clinical Symptoms Bloating, slow digestion, constipation Lack of energy High Cholesterol and Triglycerides Hormonal insufficiency Intolerance to alcohol and/or medications Recurrent infections
