Biochemistry

The albumin analysis is used for the quantitative determination of albumin levels in the blood. Albumin is an important protein produced in the liver and plays a key role in maintaining oncotic pressure in blood vessels, transporting various substances, and regulating fluid balance. The albumin test is often used as part of a routine panel of laboratory tests to assess general health status, monitor chronic diseases, or provide information on the effectiveness of therapy. Like many other biochemical analyses, this test can be done at a private laboratory in Belgrade, IntroLab.

When is the albumin analysis indicated?

The albumin test is used as part of the diagnostic process to detect liver and kidney diseases, as well as to assess the nutritional status of a patient. Accordingly, indications for determining albumin levels include:

  • Routine medical examination: The albumin test is often performed as part of a routine panel of laboratory tests to assess the general health status of the patient.
  • Signs and symptoms of liver or kidney disease: To evaluate liver and kidney function, this test may be performed on individuals displaying symptoms such as fatigue, loss of appetite, jaundice, or swelling.
  • Suspicion of malabsorption or malnutrition: This analysis can provide information about the nutritional status of individuals suspected of having nutrient absorption issues or nutritional deficiencies.
  • Monitoring nutritional status in hospitalized patients: Albumin is often monitored in hospitalized patients to assess their nutritional support and identify any nutritional deficiencies.
  • Preparation before surgery: Before some surgical procedures, the albumin analysis can be part of the patient’s preparation to assess their nutritional status and determine their ability to withstand the procedure.

Interpreting the biochemical blood analysis regarding albumin

If the test result shows a normal albumin level in the patient’s blood, it indicates adequate nutritional status and liver function. This is the expected result in healthy individuals.

If the test result shows a lowered albumin level, it may indicate liver diseases (such as cirrhosis or hepatitis), kidney diseases, malabsorption, or malnutrition.

An elevated albumin level is relatively rare, but it can be associated with dehydration or other conditions that cause a concentration change of albumin relative to water in the blood.
