How to check your Globulins levels with a home finger-prick blood test kit
What Is A Globulins Test For?
Globulins are a group term for proteins that make up nearly half of the total protein in your blood. Globulins have a critical role in normal liver function, fighting infection and blood clotting.
Globulins are created by the immune system and the liver. The amount of globulins in your blood helps indicate many conditions such as liver damage, kidney diseases, autoimmune conditions or nutritional problems.

What If Globulins Test Levels Are High?
High levels often indicate infection or inflammation, immune disorders or other conditions.
Certain medications and dehydration can also lead to abnormal results.
What If Globulins Test Levels Are Low?
Low globulin levels can be caused by a number of conditions, including malnutrition, kidney issues, liver dysfunction, or haemolytic anaemia (low red blood cells).
It can also indicate that proteins are not being digested and absorbed properly, which can occur in certain conditions like celiac disease or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Given the wide array of potential causes, further investigation is required.
