Bile Salt & Pigment


Bile salts are important for the breakdown of fats in your body. Bile salts are produced by your liver and stored in your gallbladder. They help break down fats so that your body can absorb important nutrients. The Bile Salt & Pigment test detects bile salts in your urine. Most of the time bile salts are not present, but when they are present they can be a sign of liver disease or issues with bile flow.
