    Does everyone on here have a liver function test when they get their bloods taken for a review?

    My GP does a liver and kidney panel test annually in addition to the usual FBC and hba1c. It is not uncommon.

    I get my liver tested every 6mths due to metformin has left high enzymes before.

    A scan recently showed no fatty liver progression.

    Scans normally only ordered if results not normal from blood test.

    Yes, I have liver and kidney function tests at the same time as HbA1c every six months.

    Yes, mine are done every 6 months along with my HbA1c, full blood count, liver and kidney functions, eGFR and so forth.
    I'm not on any medication and have normal functions.
