Apart from its unique role in biliary and drug metabolism, the liver is central to the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins. Lactate, an end product of carbohydrate and protein metabolism, is an important fuel source. The coagulation system depends on clotting factors (proteins) produced in the liver. Other plasma proteins are equally important. The liver is very effective in converting ammonia to safe metabolites. It is also a key organ involved in the body’s immune system.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Produce a systematic classification of liver function
• Describe the role of the liver in the intermediate metabolism
• Know the function of lactate in the body
• Discuss the synthetic function of the liver
• Describe the handling of ammonia in the body
• Recognize the importance of the liver as an immune organ
