See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, elevated gamma globulins suggest chronic inflammation and it needs to be investigated. You may consult this site and discuss the matter with your doctor. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003544.htm
