Proteins perform various functions in the body, including building and repairing tissues, transporting substances, and regulating cell activity. The Total Protein test provides information about the overall protein status in the body. Abnormal levels of total protein can indicate a wide range of conditions, such as malnutrition, liver or kidney disease, inflammation, or certain types of cancer.
