Research Facts
Patients who have chronic liver disease and kidney disorders are at risk of developing abnormal Albumin concentrations in the blood. Albumin has special relevance to patients with diabetes because its presence in urine is a marker of diabetic kidney disease. The Albumin test allows for timely and accurate assessment of kidney disease; resulting in the correct adjustment of treatment and accurate monitoring of the complications of diabetes.
