How are abnormal liver function tests dealt with in primary care?

First of all, it is a shame that we still consider standard liver enzyme levels as a “liver function” test. It absolutely is NOT. With these tests, we are looking for liver damage, not function (with exception of bilirubin, which is somewhat of a functional test). True liver function tests involve what the liver DOES, such as detoxification panels. I love to see a patient come in with altered liver function, because I know there is so much that functional medicine can do for these patients.
