Q1: What can affect albumin levels in the blood?

A: Conditions such as liver disease, kidney disease, malnutrition, inflammation, and dehydration can impact albumin levels.

Q2: Can low albumin levels cause symptoms?

Q3: Can high albumin levels be a concern?

A: High albumin levels are less common and can be associated with dehydration, severe burns, or certain medical conditions. Your healthcare provider will interpret the results in context.
