Total Protein is a measure of all the proteins in the blood, including albumin and globulins. Abnormal levels of total protein may indicate liver or kidney disease, or other health problems.

iollo markers that associate with Total Protein


Alanine is an amino acid that is a component of many proteins in the body. Higher alanine levels may reflect increased protein turnover or breakdown, which could correlate with changes in total serum protein levels.


Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body and is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Glutamine levels may relate to overall protein status as reflected by the total protein clinical lab marker.


Leucine is an essential amino acid that stimulates protein synthesis and inhibits protein breakdown in muscle. Leucine levels could potentially impact total body protein balance and the total protein lab measurement.
