    Unexplained weight loss, excess fatigue, swelling, or oedema caused by extra fluid in tissues and any symptoms that indicate liver or kidney disorder indicates a protein disorder. Eating more protein or a protein rich diet will have no bearing on the total proteins in your blood. A healthy nutritious diet is important to maintain optimal protein levels. Certain medications like steroid may affect the total protein level and it will be important to stop medication before undertaking the test.

The test is ordered if the doctor suspects malnutrition, malabsorption or a liver or kidney disorder. The total proteins test and the A/G ratio is also part of a routine check-up.

The important building blocks of all cells and tissues are proteins; they are important for body development and health. They make the structural part of most organs and form enzymes and hormones that regulate body functions. Albumin and Globulin are the two major proteins. Albumin makes up 60% of the total protein and is produced by the liver. They basically nourish tissues and transport hormones, vitamins and drugs all through the body. Globulin on the other hand helps fight infection. Some of the globulin is produced by the immune system. They include enzymes, hormones, carrier proteins, and numerous other types of proteins.

Reference Values

The normal range for total protein is between 6 and 8.3 grams per decilitre (g/dL).

Interpretations

Results of a total protein test are typically considered along with those from other tests of the CMP and will give the doctor information on a person's general health status with regard to nutrition and/or conditions involving major organs, such as the kidney and liver. However, if results are abnormal, further testing is usually required to help diagnose the disease affecting protein levels in the blood.

A low total protein level may suggest a liver disorder, a kidney disorder, or a disorder in which protein is not digested or absorbed correctly. Low levels can be seen in severe malnutrition and with conditions that cause malabsorption, such as celiac disease or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

A high total protein level can be seen with chronic inflammation or infections such as viral hepatitis or HIV. It also may be associated with bone marrow disorders such as multiple myeloma.
