Total protein test


Total protein test


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.
