Albumin Globulin Ratio Calculation
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
Total protein 7.9 albumin 3.7 globulin 4.2. And albumin/globulin ratio is 0.9. Is this concerning?
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?
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?
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
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
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
Protein Total Serum 8.7 Globulin Serum 4.20 Albumin/ Globulin Ratio 1.07 ALP 132 Urea/ CreatinineRatio 18.54 rest normal. Any worries here?
Need more info.:
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, there is no immediate concern, however, your globulin level may be higher than normal and you should discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...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
Blood work results, chloride was low at 98 mmol, anion gap was high at 17.4, glucose was high at 108 mg/dl, A1c was 6.2, albumin/globulin ratio 2.0?
Prediabetes: Hi. That A1c is above normal, & if that glucose is FASTING, it is too (it's not abnormal if it's not fasting). They demonstrate "prediabetes", the abnormal state between normal & diabetes. What was your bicarb/total CO2? Unless it was low, anion gap (a calculated value) doesn't mean anything; it's useful in states of ketoacidosis, lactic acidosis, etc). A:G ratio is fine too. Eat healthy, exercise ...Read more
My labs came back should I be worried? Been feeling fatigued, pain under left rib cage, not hungry, night sweats for several months now. Immature granulocytes. 06 (H) - RBC 5.25 (H) - WBC 12.1 (H) - Albumin/Globulin ratio. 9 (L) - Bun/Creatinine ratio 22 (
Yes: Immature blood cells are never normal. You need to see a hematologist to determine what is wrong. Good luck. ...Read more
Need more info: Lab test results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and is best done by the doctor who ordered the test as s/he likely knows your health history. A doctor needs to know the actual values of the results and more clinical information. ...Read more
Stop worrying: There is no need to treat a lab test result. Actually, a low A/G ratio reflect lowish albumin, which your liver makes for you, and the most abundant globulins are made by your plasma cells instead. If your albumin is not way-low, don't give it another thought. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more
My albumin, globulin values came slightly off in blood test. Albumin: 5.1 gm/dl (normal 3.5-4.8) globulin: 2.1 gm/dl (normal 2.5-3.2) shd I worry?
Urea nitrogen24mg/dl. Cholride110mmol/l. Globulin1.8g/dl (calc)albumin/globulin ratio2.5 (calc).Platelet count216thousand/ul. What does this mean?
Normal labs likely: Lab numbers without a patient are just that, lab numbers. They mean nothing to a doctor without knowing more about a patient. This is more true when labs numbers fall slightly out of range. Certain labs such as potassium (k) have a very narrow range. For instance, a slightly elevated k level may be nothing (erroneous) or could mean a medical emergency in a patient with end stage renal disease. ...Read more
Last month ast, ALT all normal, albumin, globulin, bilirubin not normal, this month albumin, bilirubin, globulin normal but AST and ALT very high. Possible?
Yes: This is not only possible but commonplace. I believe we've met. Cirrhosis is a chaotic system and labs fluctuate based on activity (damage / healing). We're not going to know for certain, but if we could talk to your liver, i'd bet he would tell you he's regenerated a huge number of cells which is why he's working better and has more total cells though still bearing injury. Be glad. ...Read more
I am on methotrexate. Labs say that albumin/globulin and anion gap are low with bilirubin in urine. Should I be worried?
Yes: Your physician knows how to handle this. Managing patients on Methotrexate is a matter of weighing the benefits in treating the illness against the predictable danger to the liver. The bilirubinuria is more specific for a liver problem. Trust your physician on this; I trust you stay physically fit and do not use alcohol. ...Read more
Raised Liver ALT&GGT, no history of being raised before - don't drink. Only new med is thyroxine. Bilrub, ALP, protein, albumin, globulin normal. Why raised?
How raised?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have been helpful to have the actual values. As a rule of thumb, it the values are more three times the normal limit, it is not an emergency and you may see your doctor at your convenience. ...Read more
Can not drinking enough water before a blood draw for potassium, calcium, total protein, albumin, globulin and hgb cause them to be slightly high.
I got a high Bilirubin of 1.99 & mildly high SGPT/SGOT. ALP-OK, Albumin/Globulin - OK. Blood HB 14.4. Hep B & C- NO. Pancreas enzymes - OK. I got v bad mucus stool Yestrday. My GP Rx'd Metronidazole 400 & Rifaximin 550. R they Safe for Liver?
Explanation: Your liver enzymes are normal and this reflects the normal liver function. Please, continue the prescribed medications. This's important for recovery. ...Read more
Liver blood tests: The liver is an amazing organ- it does many things including making proteins your body needs. Albumin is a major protein product of the liver. Chronic illness can cause that to decline- esp. If you're not eating. Globulins are other proteins usually made to fight diseases like infections- perhaps you've been fighting an illness for a few weeks/months that explain this pattern. ...Read more
Albumin: These levels are alrightGet a more detailed answer ›
I had a physical done - and I got my results pt is 8.3 [h] albumin 4.0 [normal] globulin 4.3 [ht] and ratio is 0.9 should I be concerned?
Lab data: These values cannot be interpreted in any meaningful fashion without a full assessment of your clinical condition. The best means of assessing this is to discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the tests and it would specifically help to know why they were ordered. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more
Dr. Said my blood work was fine but globulin was high at4.4 (norm 2.0-4.0)A/G ratio was low at. 9 (norm 1.0-2.4)Total protein and albumin normal. This ok?
Repeat the test.: Your albumin/globulin ratio will be low with a normal albumin and high globulin, since it is simple a ratio of tests. Higher globulin may mean a chronic inflammatory or infectious disease or condition, leukemia or other bone marrow disease, an autoimmune disease such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, liver or kidney disease. In your case, the globulin may be elevated due to a past cold or virus. ...Read more
I want a hematologist opinion please why Wud there be a m spike when proteins albumin globulins ag ratio are in good ranges pls kindly let me knw? Plsl
SPEP: A monoclonal (M) protein "spike" can occur with a normal albumin and normal immunoglobulin (Ig, eg IgA, IgG, IgM) levels. A monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) can be further evaluated for smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM) or symptomatic MM with additional tests. MM patients may have CRAB findings - hyperCalcemia, Renal (kidney) insufficiency, Anemia, and Bone problems. ...Read more
