Albumin, Body Fluid

1Day(s)

Reference Range

Albumin is a non-glycosylated protein with a molecular weight of 66000 daltons. It is synthesized in liver parenchymal cells at a rate of 14 g/day. Quantitatively, albumin is normally the most important protein component (> 50 %) in plasma, CSF and urine. A small, but abnormal albumin excretion in urine is known as microalbuminuria. Causes of microalbuminuria can be glomerular (e.g. due to diabetic microangiopathy, hypertension, minor glomerular lesion), tubular (inhibition of reabsorption) or postrenal. Albumin is also a marker protein for various forms of proteinuria.
