What is Albumin?

Albumin is a protein made by the liver and circulated through blood plasma (the clear liquid part of the blood). Medical albumin is made up of plasma proteins derived from human blood. Alburx helps increase the amount of plasma or albumin in the blood.

Albumin is a medicine used to replenish the loss of blood volume due to traumas like severe burns or accidents that cause blood loss. It is also utilized to treat low levels of albumin that are caused by surgery, dialysis, abdominal infections, insufficiency of the liver, pancreatitis, respiratory distress, the bypass procedure, ovarian issues caused by fertility medications, and many more conditions.
