Protein (Body Fluids)

Body fluids are intracellular and extracellular fluids. Extracellular fluids are intravascular fluids (fluids between tissues and fluids in body cavities like blood, urine, saliva, milk, tears, cerebrospinal fluid, genital fluids etc). The blood contains 60% albumin. It is also found in muscle, skin, sweat, tears, stomach, and bile. The most important task of albumin is keeping the fluid balance between blood and tissues. When this balance is disturbed, edema occurs.
Interpretation:In pathological conditions like edema, albumin levels will be the indicator of that pathology and treatment method decision by the clinician.
