Total protein test



Introduction 

A total protein test is used to measure the amount of protein in your blood.

The test can help diagnose a number of health conditions including:



kidney disease



liver disease



malnutrition - where a person's diet doesn't contain enough nutrients to meet their body's needs



If your total protein levels are abnormal, further tests will be needed to identify which proteins are too high or too low. This will enable an accurate diagnosis to be made.
