What is Total serum protein test ?

The liver is responsible for making proteins from the food that we eat. Proteins play several important roles in our body.

Two of the key proteins made by the liver are :

Albumin. This carries medicines and hormones throughout your body. It also helps with tissue growth and healing.

Globulin. This is a group of proteins. Some of them are made by your liver. Others are made by your immune system. They help fight infection and transport nutrients.

The total serum protein test measures all the proteins in your blood. It can also check the amount of albumin you have compared to globulin, or what’s called your “A/G ratio.”

Healthy people have a little more albumin than globulin but if you are sick then ratio can get changed.

Why is this test done ?

Your doctor might order this test for the following reasons :

  • Make sure you’re getting enough nutrition
  • Screen for liver, kidney, or blood disease
  • See if you’re at risk for an infection
  • Find the cause for symptoms you’re having
How to interpret the results of this test ?

You should let your doctor interpret the results for you. However for those who want to have the correct information this is how the results are interpreted by your doctor :

Low total protein: You could have a liver or kidney disorder, or a digestive disorder like celiac disease (your body can’t absorb protein the way it should).

High total protein: Too much protein in your blood can be a sign of chronic infection or inflammation (like HIV/AIDS or viral hepatitis). It can also be an early sign of a bone marrow disorder.

Low A/G ratio: This might be the sign an autoimmune disorder, where your body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. It can also point to kidney disease or liver cirrhosis, which is inflammation and scarring of the liver. In some cases, a low A/G ratio can be a sign of a tumor in your bone marrow.
High A/G ratio: This can be a sign of disease in your liver, kidney, or intestines. It’s also linked to low thyroid activity and leukemia.
What is the importance of protein in our body ?

Proteins are a large category of molecules that support cell structure, immune function, movement, chemical reactions, hormone synthesis, and more. They’re all made up of tiny building blocks called amino acids. Nine of these are essential–meaning your body needs them but can’t make them on its own, so you need to get them in your diet

Not only is protein essential for your health but consuming it can keep you feeling full and satisfied, which supports a healthy body weight. You should consume 0.8 gm of protein for each kg of body weight. This means that if your body weight is 80 kg then you should be eating 64 gms of protein every day.

Which foods are rich sources of protein ?

Proteins are mainly found in non-veg food, dairy products and pulses. Some of the foods which are good sources of protein are :

  • Eggs
  • Almonds
  • Chicken Breast
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Lentils
