Albumin Blood Test

  • Certified labs
  • Best price
  • Digital report

Albumin is a protein produced in the liver that transports vitamins, enzymes, and other substances throughout your bloodstream.

What is this test?

Albumin is the most common protein found in blood. It should make up over 60% of your blood's total protein. It's produced in the liver, and acts as a transport system to carry necessary substances throughout your body. Low levels of albumin can indicate liver disease, Cirrhosis, problems with your kidneys, or the presence of infection and inflammation.

Frequently asked questions

The Albumin Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring the levels of albumin, a common protein. 

Your provider may order a blood test for albumin to diagnose problems with the liver, or monitor treatment. Low albumin levels can be associated with certain infections, inflammation, malnutrition, cancer, Cirrhosis, kidney disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism, or even a recent surgery.

Your provider may wish to order an Albumin Blood Test if you’ve exhibited symptoms of liver disease, which may include:  

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and/or skin)
  • Extreme exhaustion
  • Itchy skin
  • Dark urine
  • Pale feces

You cannot take an Albumin Blood Test at home — this test can only be administered by a medical professional at a licensed testing facility. 

Once you receive the results of your blood test for albumin, you will need to consult with your provider. Only a medical professional can advise you on the results of your albumin levels and help you develop a treatment plan if necessary. 

Your albumin levels may fluctuate over time, depending on how healthy your liver and kidneys are. A blood test for albumin can help you monitor the health of your organs and confirm whether or not you are following an effective treatment plan. 

There are no special requirements for an Albumin Blood Test. Your provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Albumin Blood Test results typically only take 1-2 business days to process.
