Albumin blood test evaluates nutritional status, blood oncotic pressure, evaluation of renal disease with proteinuria, and other chronic diseases.
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.
