Examines the levels of specific blood proteins the Globulins. These are divided into Albumin as well as Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Beta, and Gamma globulins, Alpha 1 responds to acute phase inflammation and includes thyroid binding globulin and alpha 1 antitrypsin. Alpha 2 includes ceruloplasmin and the A2 component increases in acute phases ie. a marker for inflammation. Beta globulins are essentially transport proteins and include SHBG and transferrin. Gamma globulins are predominantly immunoglobulins or antibodies involved in immune function and autoimmunity. Globulin levels are used to ascertain thyroid function, diabetes, anaemia, liver dysfunctions, immune and autoimmune issues and nutrient absorption issues.
