    Has anyone heard of blood transfusions with albumin which supposedly regulates the colloidal osmotic pressure of the blood? I found an article where a teenage girl gets this treatment once a week. I copy and pasted part of the article below but it all copied without spaces. The article came from sylvanlakenews.com I can look for the actual link later but I'm on my phone and it's a pain.
