The liver in normal pregnancy

  • Urs Peter Haemmerli


The liver performs its function well during gestation. Tests and laboratory determinations usually employed to evaluate liver function and liver disease deviate, however, not infrequently from the normal in healthy pregnant women. These disturbances are rarely severe, surpassing the accepted upper limit of normal for non-pregnant females only slightly. They are on the main more common in the later weeks of gestation and are usually rectified after delivery.
