Proteins are crucial building blocks of all cells and tissues. They play a role in building various structures in our body, as well as carrying out many important processes for our body to function normally. Our blood and other body fluids contain several proteins that serve diverse functions, such as transport of nutrients, removal of toxins, control of metabolic processes such as digestion, and defence against external substances. Protein electrophoresis is a method for separating these proteins based on their size and electric charge. Since albumin is the most important and abundantly available protein in the body, it’s the most commonly measured protein in the blood, followed by globulin. It has various forms depending on the structure.
Albumin: 3.3-5.7 g/dL
a- 1: 0.1-0.4 g/dL
a- 2: 0.3-0.9 g/dL
b- 2: 0.7-1.5 g/dL
gamma: 0.5-1.4 g/dL
The normal Ranges aforementioned are just used as a reference. These ranges vary within different labs, and your lab may use a different range for normal Ranges. Your lab report generally mentions the normal Ranges used for that lab, mentioned against the Ranges estimated for your blood sample. Also, your doctor will calculate your results based on your health and other factors. This means even though if a Range doesn’t fall within the normal range, it may still be considered normal by your lab as would take into account some other factors impacting the Ranges.
