See below: 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, elevated gamma globulins suggest chronic inflammation and it needs to be investigated. You may consult this site and discuss the matter with your doctor. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003544.htm ...Read more
please guide me i got a result in Alpha Feto protein test 109.08 ng/mL . and i was not feeling well. pls tell me what's should i do?
A blood test: This test can be found in several diseases. It is elevated in liver disease including hep c, testicular cancer, and diseases in the OB world. We worry when this is over 250 with liver lesions and find that over 500 in a patient with a liver mass is diagnostic of liver cancer. Some specialists will get a baseline in hep c and use it as a tool to help screen for new liver cancer. ...Read more
High alpha beta protein and baby measuring 16 weeks when I am 17.5 weeks along. Doc said placenta mostly likely not working? Is there still hope?
Alpha fetoprotein?: There is a test that's typically done at 15-20 weeks of alpha-fetoprotein. AFP is made in liver of baby. High levels can signify spina bifida, anencephaly, chromosomal problems, and problems with baby's intestines being outside their abdominal wall. When one of these markers (there are 4 that are done) is elevated, additional ultrasounds are done and amniocentesis is typically offered. ...Read more
What does all this mean listed down below? Monoclonal protein see below
test result lo units
monoclonal protein study, random, u
albumin 51 %
alpha 1-globulin 8 %
alpha 2-globulin 10 %
What : What this means is that the blood protein levels show that there is no evidence of a blood tumor that is producing monoclonal antibodies, such as multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, and some types of b-cell lymphoma. This does not rule out multiple other lymphomas and some other tumors. You need to follow up with your physician who can interpret this test in light of your clinical findings. ...Read more
Can you explain my lumbar puncture results - CSF alpha Feto protein 0.555 Beta HCG 0.322(iu/l) I have a pineal tumour. Tested CSF for germ cell.
These values are OK: These levels do not look out of ordinary. You need to relate these levels to previous levels of these markers. if they were high before then this test might have some meaning. Your oncologist is your best guide to explain what it all means. ...Read more
I had normal serum protein electrophoresis. Alpha-1-globulin is 0.25 (0.17 - 0.50 g/dl). Low end of normal? Do i need to test for alpha1-antitrypsin?

Inflammation: Serum protein electrophoresis is a test that examines specific proteins in the blood, serum Albumin and alpha-1, alpha-2, beta, and gamma globulins. In the alpha-1 zone, alpha-1 antitrypsin (aat) is the major protein, which is involved in neutralizing enzymes secreted by inflammatory cells. Aat is increased in acute inflammation. ...Read more

Can you interpret, squam epi cells few a, alpha 2 protein 1.01 h, possible faint IgM lambda monoclonal protein present, ACE serum 75 h?
No: Can't interpret random blood test results without context. Talk to the doctor that ordered the tests. Most medical tests (x-rays, blood tests, etc., ) are better at telling us what you don't have rather than diagnosing what (if anything) you do have wrong with you. ...Read more
I just had some lab work done. What would cause a low serum albumin level, high alpha 1 and 2 and high c-reactive protein and low vit d?
Likely inflammation: Generally, decreased Albumin and increased globulins are seen in inflammatory conditions, acute or chronic. The fever ; high CRP also support this. Of note, other conditions may cause this including cancer, but still, the most likely explanation is infection/inflammation. A low vitamin d level may be caused by inadequate intake, no sun exposure, absorbtion problem, kidney disease, obesity. ...Read more
Hi, ive got elevated alpha 2 macro glob, apolipo protein, alt and not immune to hep b reactive to a, chronic hcv and weight loss, muscle loss.. Wrong?
An M spike in either: The urine or the serum reflects the production of a single (monoclonal) globulin. It is found in multiple myeloma, a malignancy of the plasma cells that make antibody, and also can be found in so-called monoclonal gammopathy of unclear significance (mgus) which is generally benign. ...Read more

I've had an electrophoresis test done, serum & urine. Results show a spike in the beta and gamma regions. No monoclonal protein. What does this mean? I have proteinuria and fsgs stage 3. I am 50
What is FSGS?: Please do not use abbreviations....They mean different things to different people. Ask your doctor to advise you about any relationship of your electrophoresis report to your underlying problem. I do not think this report is of any consequence or concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
