Liver Health

Pre-Albumin

Optimal Result: 18 - 38 mg/dL.

The prealbumin screen is a blood test that may be used to see if you are getting enough nutrition in your diet. This may be because you have a chronic condition. Or it may be because you have an infection or inflammation, or you suffered a trauma. 

Prealbumin is a protein that is made mainly by your liver. Your body uses it to make other proteins. Prealbumin also carries thyroid hormones in the blood.

Reference Range(s):

≤5 Days 6-21 mg/dL
6 Days-12 Months   Not established   
1-5 Years 14-30 mg/dL
6-9 Years 15-33 mg/dL
10-13 Years 20-36 mg/dL
14-17 Years 22-45 mg/dL
Adult Males 21-43 mg/dL
Adult Females 17-34 mg/dL

What does it mean if your Pre-Albumin result is too low?

Prealbumin is decreased in protein-calorie malnutrition, liver disease, and acute inflammation.

Low levels could also be caused by:

- Not enough zinc in your diet
- Cancer
- Chronic illness
- Infection
- Digestive disorders
- Hyperthyroidism

What does it mean if your Pre-Albumin result is too high?

High levels could be due to:

- Pregnancy
- Kidney problems
- Hodgkin’s disease
- Iron deficiency
- Hyperactive adrenal glands
