Hypoalbuminemia results in decrease in albumin in serum and the colloid osmotic pressure 
exerted by albumin decreases.however,body tries to compensate the decreasing albumin with 
increasing the production of globulin in reticuloendothelial system.the more amount of globulin 
cannot compensate the colloid osmotic pressure?why edema still occur?
