Haptoglobin is a protein made by the liver. It binds to hemoglobin released from breaking down of RBCs and is removed by the liver. When the levels are low, it indicates hemolysis or increased breakdown of RBCs. The test is used to confirm hemolytic anaemia.
Test is performed on a blood sample. No preparation is needed. Inform your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, nutritional supplements, herbal or ayurvedic preparations, and homeopathic medicines you are taking
