ALB


Clinic significance

Albumin is a protein which is synthesized in the liver. Half-life = 15 to 20 days. It is a key transport protein and it is also important in maintaining colloidal osmotic pressure. Reduced albumin levels are seen in malnutrition, impaired liver function, inflammation and in conditions which result in heavy loss of protein (a range of different glomerular and gastrointestinal problems). Elevated albumin levels are seen in hemoconcentration.
