Protein Levels Tested?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I read that when blood proteins (total, especially) are low, the fluid can leak more easily from the blood vessels into the tissues because of osmosis changes, contributing to leg edema. Blood proteins hold fluid in the vessels. Doctors worry about low albumin, but even if albumin is normal or high, the total can be low.

I know mine get low, being a veggie. I was wondering if anyone else had their proteins tested and found low.
