Serum albumin allows us to establish a misbalance of albumin content (hypo- and hyperalbuminemia) at various pathologic conditions. Besides, in the case of dehydration, this protein concentration can increase.
Decrease of concentration SA in case of malnutrition, infringements of resorption, diseases of the liver (cirrhosis, atrophy, toxic damage, blastomas). Moreover, the loss of albumin increases in cases of:
Increased albumin disintegration also occurs in sepsis, fever, traumas, and blastomas.
Albumin is the main blood protein produced in the human liver. This substance is a separate group of proteins – the so-called protein fractions. Changing the ratio of individual protein fractions in the blood often gives the doctor more meaningful information than just the total protein. Determination of albumin is necessary to diagnose liver and kidney diseases and rheumatic and oncological diseases.
It accounts for more than half of all blood proteins. The liver synthesises it, and its half-life is 17 days. Since albumin molecules participate in binding water, when its level falls below 30 g / l, some water moves from the vascular bed to denser tissues, causing oedema.
Colon hydrotherapy with bicarbonate of soda and a herbal implant that helps remove gas. It also stimulates, soothes and relaxes the liver and gallbladder. Consequently, sodium bicarbonate delivered to the colon through hydrotherapy can kill candida. Your appointment includes initial consultation.
Maintaining the oncotic blood plasma pressure is the primary function. Therefore, the oncotic pressure decreases with a decrease in albumin content in the plasma. Then, the bloodstream releases the fluid into the tissue. “Hungry” oedema develops. This substance provides about 80% of the oncotic plasma pressure. The body quickly loses albumin in the urine in kidney disease. Therefore, they play an essential role in the drop in oncotic pressure in such conditions, leading to oedema development.
Albumin is a reserve of free amino acids in the body, formed due to proteolytic cleavage of these proteins.
Transport function. This protein transports many substances in the blood, especially those that are poorly soluble in water:
There are special calcium-binding centres for calcium binding in the albumin molecule. Many drugs are transported in complex with this substance, such as acetylsalicylic acid and penicillin.
Do you experience reactions to foods and think an allergy might cause them? Do you experience hay fever-type symptoms, the cause of which is unknown to you? Allergies can be challenging to pinpoint. And, it’s almost impossible to deal with an allergy without identifying what is causing the problem. This Food Allergy Test is a fast and reliable home-to-laboratory allergy testing service. Furthermore, it can pinpoint what you are reacting to, identify your specific allergic reactions, and enable you to take control.
