Description

 

Prealbumin screens to see whether you are getting proper nourishment from your diet. Specifically, the test finds out if you have been getting enough protein and if not, whether you are at risk for malnutrition or already suffering from it. Prealbumin is a protein that is made mainly by your liver. Your body uses prealbumin as a building block to make other proteins.
