Why was it checked?: I'm interested to know why it was checked. Every lab has small variants in their "normal ranges" depending on what assays they use. The general normal range for total protein is 6.0 to 8.3 g/dL. Yours is right at the top end of normal. But without knowing what (if any) symptoms you are having or why it was checked, then it doesn't really mean anything. Except that it is basically normal.
