Total protein measurements can reflect nutritional status and may be used to screen for and help diagnose kidney disease or liver disease, for example. Sometimes conditions are detected with routine testing before symptoms appear. If total protein is abnormal, further testing must be performed to identify which specific protein is abnormally low or high so that a specific diagnosis can be made. Some examples of follow-up tests include protein electrophoresis and quantitative immunoglobulins.The test total protein and albumin tests are routinely included in the panels of tests performed as part of a health examination such as MolQ Complete Health Package / MolQ Basic Health Package, so they are frequently used to help evaluate a person's overall health status.
