Normally proteins circulate throughout our body which helps to maintain homeostasis within the body. Serum albumin which is a human plasma protein which constitutes 50% of the plasma proteins and it is synthesized by hepatocytes in liver.The main function of albumin is to regulate the oncotic pressure also called as colloid osmotic pressure in the blood compartment. However in this condition dehydration induced hyperalbuminemia due to increased plasma albumin level leads to decreased plasma volume and it leads increases in serum albumin concentration resulting dehydration (plasma water decreases) therefore fluid replacement therapy is prescribed.
