Albumin: An Important Marker for Kidney Patients!

What is albumin?

Albumin is a type of protein in your blood. If you are a dialysis patient, it is one of the key blood levels in your monthly labs. It is a general indication of a patient’s well-being. A good level is 4.0 gm/dl or higher.

Albumin is a marker that is helpful to your doctor and dietitian when doing a monthly assessment of your nutrition and health status. Albumin levels are used as an indicator of how well you would fare if you became ill. In other words, an optimal albumin will help you to feel well and heal well.

Albumin can be affected by a number of factors, such as:

  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • A recent hospitalization
  • Shortened treatments
  • Catheter
  • Excess fluid gain in between treatments
  • Wounds, ulcers or legions
  • Digestive problems such as malabsorption, vomiting or diarrhea
  • High blood sugars
  • Smoking
  • Poor dental hygiene
