Liver Detoxification Profile Test

Liver Detoxification Profile Test

The Functional Liver Detoxification Profile (FLDP) is an assessment of the liver’s ability to manage a toxic burden. This test challenges the liver’s Phase I and Phase II detoxification pathways through a urine specimen, collected at timed intervals. The specimen is analysed for metabolites to determine the efficiency of the livers ability to eliminate and clear toxins.

Who will this test benefit?

The results of an FLDP will support accurate identification of the individual’s detoxification profile and assist in the direction of treatment.

  • Leaky gut syndrome, candida, IBS, fructose malabsorption
  • Hormonal imbalance e.g. premenstrual syndrome and menopausal symptoms, endometriosis, PCO/S
  • Regular alcohol or pharmaceutical intake

What does the test involve?

The test is performed in the privacy of your own home. The patient takes small doses caffeine, aspirin and paracetamol and collects saliva and urine specimens at set intervals. Urine and saliva samples are collected. All you then need to do is collect a urine sample first thing in the morning and post this sample of to the specified lab
