Albumin (ALB) Testing

How to check your Albumin levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit

What Is An Albumin Test For?

The Albumin (ALB) Test allows you to accurately check your levels of Albumin in a fingerprick blood sample.

Albumin (ALB) is a protein produced by the liver and is the most abundant protein in the blood.

It transports components throughout the body, nourishes tissues & prevents blood vessel leakage.

Albumin is highly sensitive to liver damage so lower levels can indicate when the liver is damaged.

High albumin concentrations in the blood usually result from dehydration.

Certain drugs, especially hormones & steroids, can increase albumin in your blood too.

As the most prevalent blood protein this can indicate liver disease, reflect kidney disease, or be seen in severe inflammation or shock. It's also possible you have a condition affecting how readily you absorb and digest protein.
 

Abnormal albumin levels are common in people with kidney disorders or chronic liver disease. Likewise if you have an inflammatory condition of any sort or have prolonged diarrhoea.

We recommend you discuss this further with a medical professional. A urine albumin test would also be useful to help rule out kidney issues.
