What is the normal range for urine albumin/globulin ratio?

What is the normal range for urine albumin/globulin ratio?

No such thing: Serum Albumin globulin ratio may be used, but it is better to look at individual levels of each protein rather than ratios. There is no valid reason to look for Albumin globulin ratio in urine. ...Read more

Albumin (Definition)

Albumins are proteins which dissolve in water and are not covered with chains of sugars. The most common is serum albumin. These molecules transport other molecules which don't dissolve in water very well. But its main function is to regulate the amount of water in the blood. Another type of Albumin is the ...Read more

Is it ok that my albumin and albumin/globulin ratio was a little high in my blood work?

Is it ok that my albumin and albumin/globulin ratio was a little high in my blood work?

Is the globulin hi?: If the reason is because your globulin is high, needs to be attended to with further analysis.Some collagen diseases (lupus, etc.)., myeloma etc..Can present with asymptomatic hypergammaglobulinemia. ...Read more

I had blood work done. My albumin level was just a little high. Also my albumin/globulin ratio was just a little high. Is that normal?

Normal : Slightly elevated Albumin level is not considered abnormal. Labs are best interpreted in the context of signs/symptoms. ...Read more

Total protein 7.9 albumin 3.7 globulin 4.2. And albumin/globulin ratio is 0.9. Is this concerning?

Total protein 7.9 albumin 3.7 globulin 4.2. And albumin/globulin ratio is 0.9.  Is this concerning?

Generically not prob: Overall this is not a problem. Typically you want your Albumin a little higher so it would be helpful to know if you are dieting or have a good amount of protein in your meals. Ratio should be about 1. ...Read more

My physical bloodwork came back with a 2.4 albumin/globulin ratio. My total protein was 6.4. Is this something I should have checked into further?

Ignore it: If your other labs are unremarkable and you feel well, this kind of inquiry is not likely to provide any useful information. Many people do not understand that lab reference ranges are set up so that several percent of healthy people fall outside. Best wishes. ...Read more

A cmp blood test says albumin/globulin ratio is 2.6 (says normal range is 1-2.1). What is this ratio, and what do results mean? Should i be concerned?

A cmp blood test says albumin/globulin ratio is 2.6 (says normal range is 1-2.1). What is this ratio, and what do results mean? Should i be concerned?

I wouldn't worry: High albumin doesn't occur except in dehydration which also raises globulin, so your total globulin is a bit low overall. Chances are you're one of the folks who makes less in the way of antibodies than other folks, at least right now. This level's no danger to you. These investigations are seldom productive and if you feel well, I'd simply be thankful for good health and keep an eye on it. ...Read more

Worried about cancer. Should i be? I had my blood drawn. Protein total 6.9. Albumin 4.9. Globulin 2.0. Albumin/globulin ratio 2.5. Is this normal?

You're fine: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. If you have no localizing symptoms, your physical exam (including testicular check) is nonrevealing and your complete blood count is normal without bizarre cells, you're almost certainly not sick with cancer. ...Read more

Total protein 8.3, serum albumin 4.2 , serum globulin 3.8, albumin globulin ratio 1.2.. Is this abnormal?

Abnormal labs: It would be helpful that for the labs mentioned above. If you. Can find the normal range or reference range and list it than our answer can be more educated and helpful. The reference range does vary from one lab to another. ...Read more

Doc says constant albumin/globulin ratio of 2.2 (4.9/2.2) not rare in some health conditions, so should monitor it. What conditions? Protein is norm.

A/G Ratio: Normally there is a little more Albumin than globulins, giving a normal a/g ratio of slightly over 1. Because disease states affect the relative amounts of Albumin and globulin, the a/g ratio may provide a clue as to the cause. A high a/g ratio suggests underproduction of immunoglobulins as may be seen in some genetic deficiencies. More specific tests are needed for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Globulin level: 4.5, Albumin level: 3.9, Total Protein: 8.4, Albumin/Globulin Ratio: 0.9, AST: 68, ALT: 105. What do these levels mean?

Need med history: You need to tell us why was this test done. Did you have some complaints? Once we know your symtoms, if any, it is easier to interpret your lab results. Your liver enzymes are slightly high and so is the globulin level which can occur due to liver problems like Hepatitis. Your doctor needs to recheck these labs in another one or two months and find the cause?hepatitis? ...Read more
