Elevated globulin: Most globulin elevations are without any major significance. Infection is a known cause of elevated globulin. Some malignancies can cause elevated globulins. Serum and urine plasmapheresis can tell you which fractions of the globulin are elevated and if it is of benign nature of not.

Lab data: This is meaningless without knowing your symptoms and why the tests were run. Have no idea what rft is, but if you can define it, please rephrase the question. Generally, laboratory values without clinical relevance are impossible to interpret. Good luck.
