A 33-year-old male asked:

Can fasting cause an elevated (4.2) globulin level? what about fasting followed by a high protein meal before the test?

No it will not: Fastin (phentermine) will not effect the globulin level and fasting followed by high protein meal will not effect the level.Globulin in the body is produced by the liver.
