DECREASE IN ALL FRACTIONS OF PROTEINS HYPOPROTEINEMIA

Hypoproteinemia occurs in the following conditions:

1.   Hemorrhage
2.   Extensive burns
3.   Pregnancy
4.   Malnutrition
5.   Prolonged starvation
6.   Cirrhosis of liver and
7.   Chronic infections like chronic hepatitis or chronic nephritis.
