I had a full blood test and now asking for LFT. Why might be the case ?

I have just had a full blood test and now have been asked to wait a week to have it repeated for LFT. Why might this be the case? Thanks

if after your blood test(common), you are asked to go for your LFTs, probably they suspecting an infection and want to know the source of it.It could be a viral hepatitis.Now dont worry,coz it could even be the food/water bourne type too.And also if the bilirubin levels and enzymes are raised or not.A typhoid fever needs to be ruled out for that matter.

My lfts were tested in the intial test, so I am presuming that there is something wrong with the results. Letter doesn't say anything more than lft needs to be retested in a weeks time. Do you know why I would have to wait a week?
