This is the main protein made by the liver and circulates in the bloodstream. Very low levels of albumin may be a sign of liver damage. Albumin is also the main protein in the blood that leaks out from the damaged kidneys. In normal healthy kidneys only a tiny amount of albumin is found in the urine. A raised level of albumin in the urine is the typical first sign that the kidneys have become damaged.
