Total Protein Test Cost

Total protein test measures the total amount of protein in blood. Albumin and globulin, two major classes of protein, are also estimated by this test. Albumin, made by the liver, helps keep the blood from leaking out of the vessels. Globulin is a group of proteins, made by liver and immune cells. They help in transporting metals such as iron, and aid in fighting infection etc.

This test is often done to check the health and functioning of kidney and liver, to determine if the diet consumed by the person has sufficient protein in it. This test helps in gaining general insight into the health of the patient and also to diagnose certain medical conditions.

Total protein test is a blood test involving a simple procedure. A blood sample as a specimen is collected from the back of the hand or from a vein from the inner arm of the patient. In babies, sample is often collected by a small puncture in the heel. The sample is analysed by an automated analyser. Traditional method is the biuret test, but currently chemical methods such as Kjeldahl's method, dye-binding assay etc. are also available. The test also measures the level of albumin to globulin (A/G) ratio. Results are usually obtained within 12 hours.

Proteins are an important source of nutrition and fuel for the body. They are the building blocks of the tissues and are important for health. This test can help diagnose abnormalities and any health conditions that may persist such as kidney and liver problems, malnutrition etc. Low levels of total protein may indicate kidney or liver disorders, or improper absorption of the proteins consumed.

High level of proteins may indicate severe dehydration, cancer like multiple myeloma, chronic inflammation or infection. Pregnancy also causes elevation in the total protein levels. High A/G ratio indicates kidney, liver or intestinal problems. Low thyroid activity also causes the ratio to increase. Low A/G ratio could be a sign of an immune disorder or cirrhosis of the liver.

Medicines interfere with the blood test so it is advised to let your healthcare provider know about the medicines taken and if there is any injury or illness that may prohibit you from taking the test. Staying hydrated is advised. More tests, blood or urine, like serum protein electrophoresis, are advised by the doctor if there is significant increase or decrease in the serum protein levels.

There may be bruising near the area from where the blood was drawn. Applying pressure on the site for several minutes will help in reducing the bruise. If there is continuous bleeding, get it checked by the healthcare provider. There are no huge risks associated with the test.

Total Protein Test FAQs
Q: What is the use of total protein test?
A: Total protein estimation is useful in diagnosing a variety of conditions that include kidney and liver diseases, malnutrition, improper absorption of proteins, etc.
Q: What causes high protein levels?
A: High levels of albumin could indicate dehydration. Globulin levels are high in people with certain conditions like lupus, kidney disorders, and liver disorders. Certain proteins are elevated during an inflammation or infection. Cancers like multiple myeloma also cause protein levels to elevate, since it causes an abnormal protein accumulation.
Q: What are the side effects of low levels of protein?
A: Weight loss, muscle weakness, swelling or edema, low blood pressure and low heart rate, anemia, muscle cramping, etc. are some side effects of low proteins.
Q: What is A/G ratio?
A: The amount of albumin present compared to the amount of globulin, is the A/G ratio. It is measured as a part of total protein test and its normal range is 0.8-2.
Q: What is the reference range for total protein in blood?
A: The normal reference range for total protein estimation is 6-8 g/dL.
