Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a disease in which the level of glucose (simple sugar) in the blood is high and albumin is the most protein in serum, the level of albumin in the blood is approximately 3.5 - 5.2 g / dL. decrease in serum albumin concentration usually occurs due to the lack of availability of raw material for protein synthesis, liver disorders, and loss of albumin through excretion. The research entitled Examination of Albumin Levels in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus who was hospitalized at the General Hospital of the Adam Malik Center in Medan in May 2018 aims to find out how to describe the albumin levels in patients with Diabetes Mellitus. This research was conducted at the Clinical Pathology Laboratory RSUP Hj. Adam Malik Medan. Based on the results of the study obtained from examination of albumin levels on 20 samples of patients with Diabetes Mellitus were patients with decreased albumin levels more, namely 15 patient samples or 75% and patients with normal albumin levels, namely 5 samples of patients or 25%.
