Bile salts: Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy is the serum bile acid test, a blood test to measure the level of bile acids. It is often referred to as total bile acids, bile salts, or bile acid salts. ... Bile acids over 10 µmol/L indicate ICP. Be sure to discuss your labs with your doctor to be sure the measurement methods are the same, and what the best treatment plan would be.
