Total Protein (TP) Testing
How to check your Total Protein levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit
What Is A Total Protein Test For?
A Total Protein test is also known as an Albumin to Globulin Ratio test.
The Total Protein (TP) Test allows you to accurately check your levels of Total Protein in a fingerprick blood sample.
Proteins are absorbed from foods and are vital parts of all cells and tissues. They are used to build muscles, skin, blood, bones and cartilage as well as making enzymes, hormones and other essential chemicals.
The total protein test measures the blood levels of two different classes of proteins; albumin and globulin.
Abnormal levels can result from liver or kidney disorders.
What If Total Protein Test Levels Are High?
High total protein levels can indicate dehydration or it can be caused by drugs including androgens, growth hormone, insulin, and progesterone.
Several serious conditions can lead to an accumulation of abnormal protein so further investigation is recommended.
