Why is albumin so important?
By Dr. Antonio Jimenez
In our experience with advanced stage cancer patients at the Hope4Cancer Institute, we often find critically low levels of albumin in their blood analysis. Low albumin levels are considered a signature of advanced stage cancers, but also of many other diseases in their critical phases. This article takes a look at the importance of albumin in patients going through a survival crisis, common to the end stage of many diseases. Much of the information in this article is derived from an exhaustive review on the subject by Park and co-authors.
