What is Transthyretin (Prealbumin) assay used for?
Transthyretin is a negative acute phase reactant and serum levels fall in inflammation, malignancy, cirrhosis of the liver and protein-wasting diseases of the gut or kidneys, owing to decreased synthesis. Elevated levels have been reported in Hodgkinson’s disease.
Transthyretin is a specific clinical indicator of nutritional risk in the management of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Renal disease, Diabetes, Pneumonia and Cancer. Nutritional assessment using Transthyretin has also been effective in surgical cases, pre-surgical screening, fractures, and wound healing.
