    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The function of albumin in the body is to keep the fluid from leaking out of blood vessels, transports hormones, and nourishes tissues. It also helps in the transportation of vitamins, medicines, and calcium throughout the body.
    Albumin is normally present in high concentrations in the blood. Normally, kidneys conserve albumin and do not release in it the urine. However, in case of damage to the kidneys, they are not able to conserve albumin, and thus it is lost in the urine.
    The other tests which can be advised along with albumin test include creatinine test, blood urea nitrogen test, or renal panel.
    The signs and symptoms of a liver disorder include yellowing of eyes or skin, weakness, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, loss of appetite, abdominal swelling or pain, dark urine, light-colored stool, and itching.
