Finding the correct cause of liver damage is important in arriving at the right treatment. Firstly, we would take a complete health history and perform a thorough physical examination. The patient will then need to go through one or more of the following:

Blood tests: A group of blood tests called liver function tests can be used to diagnose liver disease. Other blood tests can look for specific liver problems or genetic conditions.

Imaging tests: An ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI can show liver damage.

Tissue analysis: Removing a tissue sample (biopsy) from your liver may help diagnose liver disease and look for signs of liver damage. A liver biopsy is most often done using a long needle inserted through the skin to extract a tissue sample. It is then analyzed in a laboratory.
