The liver   


The liver is one of the most important and multifaceted organs in the body.  Metabolically, it is the most complex organ in the human body and serves many vital functions.  The liver is responsible for filtering out harmful substances from the bloodstream. Efficient liver function is necessary for the processing and excretion of toxins, chemicals, hormones, drugs and xenobiotics in the body. 


Symptoms of suboptimal liver function


*  Bloating

*  Chronic fatigue

*  Digestive discomfort

*  Headaches

*  Hormonal imbalances

*  Intolerance to fatty foods

*  Migraine

*  Loss of appetite

*  Multiple chemical sensitivities

*  Muscle weakness or pain

*  Nausea

*  Recurrent infection


The Role of the Liver in Detoxification and Elimination  


The liver’s detoxification process alters fat-soluble toxic materials by making them more water soluble in order to be effectively excreted from the body via urine or bile. The liver has two mechanisms of action to remove these unwanted chemicals from the body. The liver chemically alters these compounds by either an oxidation reaction (Phase I) or a conjugation reaction (Phase II).  Analysis of Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification pathways provides the correct biochemical information to help correct and regulate imbalances in liver detoxification. 


Functional Liver Detoxification Profile


The Functional Liver Detoxification Profile (FLDP) provides valuable information about the liver’s detoxification capacity.  The FLDP challenges the liver’s Phase I and Phase II detoxification capacity with low doses of Caffeine, Aspirin and Paracetamol. Saliva and urine specimens, collected at timed intervals, are then analysed for metabolites of the three compounds to determine the efficiency of the liver in their conversion and clearance from the body.  



The FLDP is beneficial in the treatment of


*  Alcoholism

*  Chronic fatigue syndrome

*  Food allergies

*  Hormonal imbalances

*  Leaky gut syndrome

*  Menopausal symptoms

*  Multiple chemical sensitivities

*  Premenstrual syndrome





The FLDP provides a comprehensive overview of an individual’s detoxification capacity. Unlike the standard general pathology liver function test (LFT), the FLDP focuses on function rather than raised enzymes.  The FLDP also incorporates biochemical individuality.



How is the test performed?


A test kit is provided with everything needed to complete the FLDP test.  Two specimens of clear saliva and one urine specimen are required. These are sent off to the laboratory to be analysed and tested. 




The results of FLDP give accurate identification of your body’s detoxification profile and provide information on the underlying causes of your symptoms and health conditions and assists in the direction of treatment.
