Prealbumin Blood Test


* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.


This test is used to help detect protein-calorie malnutrition and to monitor the effectiveness of nutrition administered or occurring elsewhere in the body than the mouth and alimentary canal.

Prealbumin is a protein that helps carry hormones that regulate how your body uses energy. Find out if your levels are within normal range!

Drugs such as amiodarone, estrogens, and birth control pills can decrease prealbumin levels. Anabolic steroids, androgens, prednisolone, and high-dose non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications can increase prealbumin concentrations.

Recommended For:

Those experiencing malnutrition; Those who take any of the above drugs/steroids; Those who have been diagnosed with Hodgkin disease or experiencing kidney failure, iron deficiency, pregnancy, and with hyperactive adrenal glands as these may cause prealbumin levels to be high.
