This Albumin blood test is tested to identify liver or kidney disease. Albumin is created in the liver and is one of the biggest protein in the blood plasma. Albumin ensures fluid doesn't leak from blood vessels and carries drugs, vitamin, hormones and more through the body. A doctor may advise this test when the patient is experiencing symptoms of kidney/liver disease.
Serum albumin measurements are used in the monitoring and treatment of numerous diseases involving those related to nutrition and pathology particularly in the liver and kidney.
