Results Of Albumin, Bilirubin And Urobilinogen Examination?
Hello Adit, thank you for the question.
Albumin is one type of protein produced in the heart, its function is to regulate the balance of fluids in the body. Albumin in the blood will normally be reabsorbed by the kidneys so that it will not be detected in urine. When the kidneys are damaged, this albumin can leak into the urine. The presence of albumin in the urine can be caused by impaired absorption in the kidneys due to diabetes, high blood pressure, drugs, trauma, infection, immune system disorders, or because of increased production. Bilirubin is the result of the breakdown of red blood cells which is then converted in the liver so that it turns into water soluble and is converted into a smooth mixture with the help of bacteria into urobilinogen. Normally, urine does not contain bilirubin or urobilinogen. If it is present in the urine then there may be damage to the liver, a blockage in the bile duct, or due to increased breakdown of red blood cells.
The results of this examination can turn into normal again if the underlying disease has been managed properly. Therefore, you should consult the results of your laboratory examination with the doctor who requested the examination, so that the doctor can confirm and match the results of the laboratory examination with your previous clinical condition, so that treatment can be done quickly and appropriately.
Thus, hopefully useful.
