Total Protein (Albumin/Globulin Ratio)
Proteins are called as the building blocks of cells and tissues. Our body requires proteins for growth and development. Our blood contains two types of proteins: Albumin and Globulin. Albumin keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels and Globulins play a huge role in our immune system.
The Total Protein test is almost always done during a routine health check-up. Total Proteins are frequently assessed as a part of person’s overall health status. The total protein test measures the total amount of two kinds of protein in your body: albumin and globulin. It may also be used if you are experiencing unexpected weight loss, fatigue, or have symptoms of a kidney or liver disease.
