Elevated Globulin Levels In Blood
My globulin levels are elevated to a 4.2. All other things tested on my blood test were all normal. Can a high protein diet or stress cause it?
How do you feel?: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel okay, I would not give this another thought.
I recently received blood results showing gamma globulin levels of 0.37 when normal range is 0.7-1.6. Is it possible that this is a one-time thing?
Maybe: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either side. This may just be you. It is no danger. Stop worrying. If this continues or you are very curious, you can get the various types quantitated. Some folks run way-low on one of the three major types. Usually they still do okay.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi, blood test results back and my globulin levels are 37g/l and believe this is above range- what can it mean? My albumin levels are 38g/l
In blood work, does elevated gamma globulin (m-spike) often cause the total serum globulin to be elevated as well?
Tt could: Since, total globulin level usually includes all kinds of globulins (alpha, m spike etc). An immunoelectrophoresis can further characterize the m spike.See 1 more doctor answer
Does low serum globulin affect blood tests that assess immunoglobulin levels? For example if an illness caused proteinuria, could a disease actually cause the test for it to be falsely negative?
Can malabsorption from small bowel Crohn's decrease sensitivity of IBD blood panel? Wouldn't low serum globulin = fewer antibodies for test 2 detect?
>100, 000 proteins: Globulin = total proteins less albumen, the most abundant protein. While globulins includes antibodies, it also includes many other proteins. Within the 5 antibody subclasses (IgM, IgG, IgA, IgE & IgD), with >100, 000 specific binding activities for just IgG, the whole point is the ratio of relative targeting specifics, competing physiologic controls & responses. Globulin can be? & targeting also?See 1 more doctor answer
Underlying disease: Elevated gamma globulin is not a disorder by itself but a manifestation of some underlying disease and that cause needs to be treated.
Multiple globulins: And multiple causes. There a number of different proteins called globulins. The usual ones involved in increasing blood levels of globulins are immunoglobulins and common causes are chronic infections, multiple myeloma, cirrhosis and some auto-immune disorders.
Can dehydration cause high globulin level mine was4.4 (range up to 4.0)My blood work in May was completely normal but now this slightly high globulin.
Yes: Yes but this should be repeated as there are many causes for elevated Globulin. This is a non specific finding.
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.
My daughter (3 yrs old) had encephalitis. Blood test showed high gamma globulin level. What could be the reason for this?
Body's reaction: To the infection, not specific to the type of virus your daughter was exposed to.
Why would pcp refer me to hematologist due to elevated protein in blood (elevated gamma globulin)? Is this something to be concerned about?
Healthy young female. Two blood tests (normal check-up). Liver test showed elevated total protein and globulin. Other parameters absolutely normal. Why?
My husband is 31 recently had high blood pressure 140/90. His rbc, cholesterol, glucose are in right levels. His globulin level is 3.9. What does it say?
Normal: Globulin is a type of protein in the blood. Normal is usually from 2.0 to about 4.0. Levels can go up if someone has liver disease or chronic infections, but it would have to be quite high to be of any concern. Your husband's level seems just about right to me, and I wouldn't look twice if I were his doctor. Don't worry! And what a lucky husband to have you looking over all his results!
I have history of elevated blood protein (8.3-8.7 since 09). Recently did spep with elevated gamma globulin. Why would pcp refer me to hematologist?
Elevated gamma glob: Do you have an m-spike detected on your serum protein electrophoresis? Do you have an imimmunofixation electrophoresis? If you do have m-spike detected- your pcp refers you to see hematologist to make sure you don't have plasma cell disorder etc. Elevated gamma glob alone without m-spike or abnormal ife- could be caused by inflammation, infection etc. Ask this question to your pcp.See 2 more doctor answers
I had routine blood work done and it showed a high total protein level, which worried me. It was 8.6. Albumin was 4.8. don't see globulin. Was tested for feeling shaky. Had been sick before. Under stress. Calcium 10.3. PTH 39.7?
Don't worry: Having a high albumin level is not alarming. If you were shaking and anxious, I would focus more on your thyroid function vs what the tests had targeted,
Can a high protein diet cause a high globulin level on blood test? Also have iron level at 49the &i enlarged spleen. Advice?
Daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease 8 weeks ago. Now has severe itching on lower legs only at night time. Low white blood count and high Globulin Serum levels. Severe weight loss, and bruising What could cause this? Itching Issues
There is a very: Characteristic skin rash that accompanies celiac disease: dermatitis herpetiformis. Typically this is a skin manifestation of non-celiac wheat sensitivity. Extremely itchy bumps or blisters appear, especially on the forearms. The lab abnormalities you describe are not typical for celiac; in fact serum globulins may be low. I suspect more than one diagnosis; continue working closely with her Doctor
No: I wouldn't focus on labs but on your overall health. This is a bit elevated but reference ranges are set so that a few percent of folks fall outside on either side. Even mild liver dysfunction, as is often seen in overweight, can raise globulins impressively. See if a return to an intense, fitness-focused lifestyle like when you were a teen helps normalize this and some other things. Best wishes
