What blood test detects protein deficiency?
A doctor can perform a set of blood tests known as a total protein, albumin, and albumin/globulin (A/G) ratio.
You are likely to suffer from liver disease, kidney disease or liver cell damage if your globulin or albumin levels are high.
It may take 3 weeks or more to increase albumin levels naturally.
Typically, your blood albumin levels will rise if you have microalbuminuria.
Usually, healthy kidneys do not pass on the albumin in the urine. Hence, if you have an absence of albumin in urine then you are having healthy kidneys.
