Alpha 2 Macroglobulin

About this test

Alpha 2 macroglobulin is a large plasma protein found in the blood and produced by the liver. It works by inhibiting enzymes in many different bodily reactions and helps to prevent blood clots from being broken down too quickly. Levels of this large protein can be raised when levels of smaller proteins such as albumin in the body fall.

Levels of alpha 2 macroglobulin can be raised in patients with nephrotic syndrome, a condition in which the kidney eliminates too much protein in the urine. Patients with diabetes mellitus may also have elevated levels of the protein.

Who is this test for?

Our Alpha 2 Macroglobulin test is for anyone who suspects that they may have nephrotic syndrome or diabetes mellitus and want to investigate further.
