What does it measure?
The Bile Acids Total test: Measures the levels of bile acid in the blood. This total bile acid is metabolized in the liver, and hence can be used to evaluate the normal functioning of the liver. The cause of the elevated levels of bile acid, total, is due to the inability of the liver to extract bile acids from the portal blood. The efficiency of the hepatic clearance of bile acids from portal blood maintains serum concentrations at low levels in normal people. The elevated fasting level due to impaired hepatic clearance is a sensitive indicator of liver disease.
