Description

Albumin is an important protein found in the blood. The protein can leak out of the blood into the urine in case of impaired kidney function and kidney disease, which then leads to a drop in the albumin value.

The test is for you who want to gain insight into how your kidneys are doing and whether you may be affected by reduced kidney function.

This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 banking days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test results, you will receive a report in English about your values and the doctor's comment.

Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.

Information

Albumin is therefore analyzed

The albumin content is analyzed to find out if you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, and also if damage or disease in the liver is suspected.

About albumin

Albumin is a protein found in the blood and formed in the liver. Albumin keeps the fluid in place in the bloodstream. In certain forms of kidney disease, albumin leaks into the urine, and then the amount of albumin in the blood drops. With a low albumin value in the blood, you can become swollen (e.g. on the feet, ankles, lower legs, fingers, face) because the water does not stay in the bloodstream but leaks out into various tissues. The albumin value can also be a measure of how good the nutritional status is.

Health Marker

Symptoms of reduced kidney function

The symptoms of chronic kidney failure, or chronic kidney failure, develop slowly. They can only appear when kidney function becomes so impaired that waste products begin to accumulate in the blood, then they can express themselves like this:

  • ✓ Loss of appetite
  • ✓ Nausea
  • ✓ Vomiting
  • ✓ Fatigue
  • ✓ Itching
  • ✓ Impaired muscle strength

The marker albumin is also measured in Health checkup Man and Health checkup Woman.
