Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS)
Bile acids are elevated in individuals with liver dysfunction, such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy.
Cholic Acid: < or = 5.0 nmol/mL; Chenodoxycholic Acid: < or = 6.0 nmol/mL; Deoxycholic Acid: < or = 6.0 nmol/mL; Ursodeoxycholic Acid: < or = 2.0 nmol/mL; Total Bile Acids: < or = 19.0 nmol/mL.
* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
Do not use for the characterization of peroxisomal biogenesis disorders or inborn errors of metabolism.
