Total protein and albumin are routinely included in the panels of tests performed as part of a physical, such as a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), so they are frequently assessed as a part of an evaluation of a person's overall health status.

Additionally, since total protein can be low, increased, or the component globulin proteins altered with many different diseases and disorders, total protein and albumin tests may be ordered in a variety of settings to help diagnose disease, to monitor changes in health status, and as a screen that may indicate the need for other kinds of testing.
