    faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to form 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. After cleaning, the needle is inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The role of albumin in the body is to keep the fluid from leaking out of blood vessels, transports hormones, and nourishes tissues. It helps in the transportation of nutrients like 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 signs and symptoms of liver disease may include weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal swelling, pain in the abdomen, yellowing of eyes or skin (jaundice), dark urine, light-colored stool, itching, and diarrhea.
    The factors which can cause an increased risk for liver disease include taking medications that can damage the liver, heavy intake of alcohol, viral hepatitis, or possible chances for exposure to hepatitis viruses, having a family history of liver disease, obesity, especially if a person has diabetes or high blood pressure.
