Albumin, Serum

Liver Health

A healthy result should fall into the range 3.4 - 5 g/dL, or 34.00 - 50.00 g/L.

One of the most abundant proteins in our bodies, albumin is produced by the liver and is used primarily to keep fluid from leaking out of blood vessels. It also plays a vital role in the maintenance, growth, and repair of tissue throughout the body. Frequently referred to as a “molecular taxi,” albumin transports several key substances such as: hormones, fatty acids, vitamins, and drugs. When we eat, our liver takes proteins from our food and changes them into new proteins that are sent to a number of different tissue and organ systems. Albumin tests are often ordered as a part of a liver panel to assess liver function or during a renal panel to assess kidney function.

            -Jaundice  (yellow skin)
