A 77-year-old member asked:

I have a blood test result of "serum total protein level 83g/l". my question: is this above the normal reference limit?

Slightly elevated: The reference range for total protein is typically 60-80g/L. Variation between labs running the test may explain your result. Best to review with your doctor to be sure how best to interpret this finding.
