Protein (Total)

Combining globulin and albumin to give a total protein reading is a useful way to help determine a number of health problems, including kidney and liver disorders and malnutrition, i.e. a lack of vital nutrients in your diet.

You’ll also receive other relevant readings including glucose, cholesterol and uric acid to help put your result into the proper context.

Doctor Cullimore says “Globulin levels can help diagnose a number of conditions, including liver or kidney disease, nutritional problems and even certain types of cancer.  So lower than normal globulin levels in your blood may indicate liver or kidney disease. Conversely, high levels can help indicate infection, inflammatory disease or immune disorders. High levels could also point to certain types of cancer, such as multiple myeloma, Hodgkin’s disease, or malignant lymphoma. Albumin levels can help determine the function of your liver.  Low levels of albumin in your blood could be a sign of liver disease, malnutrition and inflammation.  Higher than normal levels could be caused by infections, burns or stress to your body, for example from surgery or a heart attack. Low total protein levels could indicate problems with your kidney or liver. High levels may be caused by dehydration or certain types of cancer which prevent absorption of protein in your body, allowing protein to build-up.”

All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.

Which readings are included?

Albumin is a protein made by your liver. Its main job in your body is to stop your blood from leaking into other tissues, but it also helps transport hormones, vitamins, minerals and enzymes through your body, as well as aiding tissue growth and healing. Abnormal levels of albumin in your body may indicate problems with your liver or kidneys.
Globulin is a type of serum protein found in your blood. It’s used by your body to help regulate your circulatory system and transport metals in your blood, like iron, and help fight infection
Total protein is the combined total of albumin and globulin in your blood. Your reading will be put into context of the normal range for your age and gender.
This type 2 diabetes check measures the level of glucose in your blood. Around half a million people in the UK have undiagnosed diabetes, and although it increases your risk of developing serious illnesses including cancer and heart disease, in many cases the condition can be treated or even reversed through diet and lifestyle changes.
You'll receive 5 key readings including LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) or “bad” cholesterol, HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) or “good” cholesterol, Triglycerides, Total cholesterol and HDL/total cholesterol ratio. Together, these readings are used to determine whether your cholesterol is too high. High cholesterol can dramatically increase your risk of serious health conditions like heart attack, stroke, peripheral arterial disease and atherosclerosis. Over 50% of UK adults have high cholesterol.
This includes tests for Sodium, Urea and Creatinine. Abnormal levels can indicate impaired kidney function and fluid imbalance in your body. You’ll also get a reading for your eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate), used to ascertain how efficiently and effectively your kidneys are working.
This includes tests for Aspartate Transferase (AST), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphate (ALP), Gamma GT and Bilirubin. These enzymes are found in the liver and other vital organs. Levels of these enzymes are a common measure of your overall liver health and function. Abnormal levels can help indicate a range of health conditions including liver damage, bone disorders, blood disorders and jaundice.
This includes tests for calcium, corrected calcium and phosphate. Calcium is essential for healthy bone and muscle function. Phosphates are important for energy production, muscle and nerve function.
High levels of uric acid can indicate gout, a form of inflammatory arthritis which causes swelling of the joints. Low levels of uric acid can be a symptom of kidney or liver disease.
