Need more info: 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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your globulins are higher than normal and warrant investigation for chronic inflammation or myeloma.
