Albumin is a protein made by the liver.
An albumin test can help determine if a patient has liver disease or kidney disease, or if the body is not absorbing enough protein.
Albumin helps move small molecules through the blood such as bilirubin, calcium, progesterone, and medications. It plays an important role in keeping the fluid from the blood from leaking out into the tissues.
This test and many more are all included in our Health Checks.

Albumin is made mainly in the liver and helps to keep the blood from leaking out of blood vessels. It also helps carry some medicines and other substances through the blood and is important for tissue growth and healing.
Low albumin levels can indicate liver disease and can also be a marker for chronic ill-health, malnutrition and inflammation. It can also occur in kidney conditions such as nephrotic syndrome and diabetes.
Raised levels are usually caused by dehydration.
