Causes of High and Low Serum Albumin Levels (Short and Specific Listed Summary) (Easy-to-Read Version)

Albumin is a type of Protein found in the blood that essentially 'binds' and transports other proteins and chemicals in the Body. Specifically, it has a large role in transporting Hormones, Amino Acids, Minerals/Nutrients and other endogenous messengers. 

High levels of Albumin (hyperalbuminemia) are usually associated with one of the following.

  • An increased need for nutrient transport (as with trauma/shock) [1].
  • Dehydration [2].
  • A high-protein diet [3].

Low levels of Albumin (hypoalbuminemia) in the blood are associated with poorer protein delivery and poor health outcomes and are usually due to...

  • Hepatitis B or other hepatic infection [4] [5] [6].
  • Ongoing liver Disease (Cirrhosis, liver cancer etc) [7] [8] [9].
  • Inflammation [10] [11] [12].
  • Malnutrition/Low-Protein-Intake [13].
  • Crohn's Disease [14].
  • Kidney Problems (including lupus nephritis and other kidney issues) [15].
  • Infection (usually severe like tuberculosis, Hepatitis or HIV) [16].
  • Celiac Disease [17] [18].

Suggestions for Treating Low Albumin in blood would Include:
--> Increasing protein intake; supplementing with a high-quality protein powder like PES-Select Protein.

--> Protecting against and reducing inflammation - supplementing with Turmeric root/Curcumin can help.

--> Cleansing liver/kidneys with a complete liver/kidney Detox regimen.

Suggestions for Lowering a High Albumin Level would include...

-Decreasing protein intake IF EXCESSIVE.

-Reducing Stress.

-Increasing water intake and preventing dehydration.

Overall, a low albumin level is more concerning than a high level is, but it is still best to check with your Doctor to determine the cause of the abnormal lab value.
