How to Read My Blood Protein Level Chart?

The blood protein, also called haptoglobin, works to sponge up the oxygen-carrying molecule hemoglobin after its been released by old red blood cells.

In general, the healthy range of haptoglobin ranges from 0.5 to 2.5 g/L. If the value is abnormally high, for one with diabetes, you may already suffer some diabetic complication. In addition, it is also one of good markers for the monitoring of heart disease such as ischemic heart disease and myocardial infarction.

Here are its normal values in three common methods:

A) rocket electrophoresis: 1.0 ~ 2.7 g/L;

B) radioimmunoassay: 0.8 ~ 2.7 g/L;

C) hemoglobin binding: 0.3 ~ 2.0 g/L.
