Hi Liver, thank you for the question.

The answer to both questions is yes, the blood test known as Liver Function Test (LFT) is a very accurate assessment of the health of the liver and furthermore, medication can have an influence on the liver function (in particular its enzymes) – even excessive use of laxatives can be seen as abnormal liver enzyme levels.
