    The above narrative about albumin thickness is very ambiguous. The reader cannot tell, by the "hover messages", whether the thin or the thick albumin is a sign of disease. Please correct the wording and make the message clear. Thank you!

    Yes, correct. It would have been better to say:
    'But a thin layer of thick-white could also be a signal of a disease' instead of 'but it could also be a signal of a disease'
    Thank you for your observation.
