Total Protein

The test is designed to measure the amount of protein in a patient's blood sample. The test is useful in diagnosing conditions such as liver disease, kidney disease, and nutritional deficiencies.

 

Test Preparation: The patient should fast for at least 8 hours before the blood sample is collected. The patient should avoid heavy exercise, caloric food, coffee and diet soda before the test.

 

Description:

The major proteins seen in the serum are albumin and globulin-the latter being primarily alpha 1 and alpha 2 globulin, beta globulin and gamma globulin. Albumin accounts for more than 50% of the total serum proteins.

The albumin to globulin (a/g) ratio has been used as an index of disease state, however, it is not a specific marker for disease because it does not indicate which specific proteins are altered. the a/g ratio can be decreased in response to a low albumin or to elevated globulins.

Total globulins may be increased in some chronic inflammatory diseases (tb, Syphilis) multiple myeloma, collagen disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Decreased levels are seen in hepatic dysfunction, renal disease and various neoplasm.

Accu Lab is highly accurate and reliable, however, certain medications or medical conditions can affect the test results. Patients should inform the healthcare professional of any medications or medical conditions they have before the test.
