Albumin to Globulin Ratio (A/G) Test

Brief summary:

Globulin refers to groups of simple proteins in the body and albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma. This test measures the total amount of various proteins in the blood

 

Technical purpose:

The purpose of this test is for general Heath, nutritional status- to see if it is adequate, and for the diagnosis of other disorders relating to kidney, liver, and blood.

 

Test process:

A sample of blood is drawn from a vein in the arm and tested. And results are usually ready in 12 hours

 

Test outcomes:

Results are considered along with CMP. However, the normal A/G ratio is 0.8-0.2. Although the albumin to globulin ratio has been used as an index of a disease state, it doesn’t indicate which proteins are altered.
