What is an albumin serum test?
An albumin serum test helps to determine whether you have any problem in your liver or kidney by evaluating the amount of albumin in your blood.
When to get tested?
Your doctor might suggest this test as part of your routine checkup. Also, you need this test, if you are having symptoms of kidney or liver diseases. Few symptoms of kidney disorders are:
- Frequent urination
- Floamy or bloody urine
- Inflammation in the abdomen, thighs and face
Few symptoms of liver disease are:
- Low appetite
- Dark colored urine and light colored stool
A phlebotomist will draw a little amount of blood through a vein in your arm. The albumin serum test price is not very high.
You do not need to do any special test preparation. However, do follow your doctor’s instructions before appearing in the test. The albumin serum test cost is much lower.
An increased albumin level indicates severe diarrhea, or dehydration. Besides, a decreased albumin level indicates kidney disease, cirrhosis, malnutrition, inflammatory bowel disease, and thyroid disease. You can now book an albumin serum test online as well.
