Albumin – Protein is synthesized by the liver and it is one of the plentiful proteins in the blood. Liver functionality monitored by ‘ALBUMIN BLOOD TEST’. This Serum Albumin test helps to diagnose conditions such as liver disorders, kidney dysfunction, etc. This test evaluates albumin levels to screen liver, kidney-associated diseases, malnutrition, and other related disorders.


This test is usually done for altered levels of albumin in blood i.e. either in ‘hyperalbuminemia’ and/or ‘hypoalbuminemia’. HYPERALBUMINEMIA is seen in patients on a high-fat diet for exercise and hepatocellular carcinoma. HYPOALBUMINEMIA is seen in conditions due to impaired synthesis, increases utilization by the system, distributional causes, or increased excretion. The causes could be due to infection and inflammation, liver diseases, kidney diseases, malnutrition, or mal-absorption. It can lead to complications like hypovolemia and circulatory collapse due to decreased oncotic pressure and/or fluid overload. This test is suggested for patients with symptoms of protein in urine causing frothy urine, fluid retention causing swelling, weakness, rapid heartbeat, vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea, etc. Other associated tests include chromatographic methods, colorimetric methods, spectrometry, kit methods, etc.
