Albumin Blood Test

This test measures Albumin levels in the blood.  Albumin is a protein produced by the liver and makes up about 60% of total protein in the blood.  Low albumin levels can indicate liver disease including Cirrhosis as well as conditions such as infection, inflammation, kidney disease, diabetes, cancer, malnutrition, hypothyroidism and recent surgery.

Albumin testing is typically done as part of routine general health testing.  It may also be ordered when a person is experiencing symptoms associated with liver disease or malnutrition. 

The Albumin test is also included in the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), Renal Function Panel, and Hepatic Function test.

Turnaround time for the Albumin blood test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

The Albumin blood test has no fasting requirements.
