Albumin test is done to measure the amount of protein albumin present in your blood. Albumin is a type of protien prodcue by the liver. It carries nutrients such as hormones, enzymes and medicines throughout the body. The test helps in diagnosing, evaluating and watching liver and kidney conditions. Generally it is seen that when kidneys start to fail, albumin begins to leak into your urine, hence it causes low level of albumin in your blood.
Albumin is the main protein present in blood plasma. Blood plasma is a fluid present in the blood responsible for holding protein and blood cells in it. Albumin plays an important function in transporting protein and medications into the body while maintaining the pressure in the blood vessels.

Individuals with the risk of liver and kidney infection should consult your doctor.
