Depends on profile: Serum protein levels are made up of a variety of proteins, albumin, as well as alpha, beta and gamma globulins. If you get a serum protein electrophoresis, the relative quantities of these proteins can be assessed. Most commonly, the Albumin level can go up or down depending on fasting levels. The other levels can go up or down depending on disease conditions or medications. See your internist.
