Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma, produced by the liver. It plays a vital role in maintaining the osmotic pressure needed for proper distribution of bodily fluids between blood vessels and body tissues. Additionally, albumin serves as a carrier protein for various substances including hormones, vitamins, and drugs. Measuring albumin levels is important for assessing liver and kidney function, as well as nutritional status. Low albumin levels can indicate liver disease, kidney disease, malnutrition, or inflammatory diseases. High albumin levels are less common and can be due to dehydration or high protein intake.
