kidney disease, in which the protein is lost from the body with urine;
liver disease, when the protein is not synthesized in the required quantities (this is one of the functions of the liver);
deficiency of protein in the diet (diseases accompanied by impaired absorption in the intestine, starvation);
increased capillary permeability;
heart disease (chronic heart failure);
thrombosis and thrombophlebitis of limbs;
