Increased aldolase,  complement c3/c4 serum, sed rate, c-react. Protein, beta globulin, monocytes, bun/creatin low mcv-mch, vit d-possible causes?

Complicated: When i was doing clinical medicine, these were collectively sort of the flags for sarcoid disease but I am not saying that's the case here. This is because sarcoid is a diagnosis of exclusion so the advice is to rule out other diseases with additional diagnostic tests which can be done by a primary care physician or rheumatologist. ...Read more

Allergies/parasite: Eosinophils are white blood cells (the part of the body's immune system which fight infection). Eosinophils are responsible for fighting off larger proteins such as parasites and is also seen with people fighting allergies. Eosinophil count being elevated is common and normally isn't asoociated with problems, which is probably why your doctor translated it as "normal". ...Read more

Why exactly does peritoneal dialysis need a greater amount of protein?

Why exactly does peritoneal dialysis need a greater amount of protein?

Protein loss: Due to its anatomy the natural peritoneal membrane used in this kind of dialysis is a leaky one that allows passage of proteins especially Albumin to the fluid that will be discarded in the bag after dialysis so a good diet with proteins is a must. ...Read more

CSF: Some experts consider CSF protein levels to be normal if the value is equal to or below your age in years. I don't think in your case there is a reason to worry. Other CSF components are important as well. Check with your physician to see if there is any reasons to worry. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more

Can you please describe the benefits and disadvantages of high protein diets?

Can you please describe the benefits and disadvantages of high protein diets?

Renal failure: A very high protein diet can challange the kidneys to get rid of the protein. If the kidney is unable to rid itself of the protein, you could be on the way to kidney failure. One advantage of a higher protein diet would be to have a little more protein and a little less fat in the diet. The american diet is way too high in saturated fat- leading to heart disease and stroke. ...Read more

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

What does high IgG kappa monoclonal protein in blood mean?

See a specialist: You don't tell me how you were found to have that high level. If you have no symptoms to go with that finding and other laboratory blood tests are normal, you probably have what is called monoclonal gammopathy. If you have symptoms or tests are affected, there are several possible diagnosis. For proper evaluation, see an immunologist or hematologist. ...Read more

Does the HS high protein CRP test give reliable information concerning inflammation in the upper chest (heart) area?

Does the HS high protein CRP test give reliable information concerning inflammation in the upper chest (heart) area?

For the most part: Hs (highly sensitive)crp is meant to measure inflammation of heart blood vessels. It is "sensitive" to cardiac vessel inflammation rather than whole body inflammation that the regular CRP measures. In either test the level can be elevated if there is an acute illness or injury that is causing inflammation in the body. The number needs to be interpreted looking at the body as a whole. ...Read more

5.5 mm kidney stone just removed thru medicine. Is it harmful to take protein powder for gym purpose after that. Will it create stone again?

Need to drink water: If it is the first time you had the kidney stone usually there is no need for further testing. Taking protein supplements may cause stones but more important is to drink plenty of water. Urine should look clear. Also need to lower salt intake. Check with your doctor for specific dietary restrictions. ...Read more

Serum free light chain test shows normal kappa (8.7mg/dl), low lambda (3.80), high kap/lam ratio (2.31). Serum $ urine electrophoresis show no monoclonal protein, nor does serum immunofixation. Likely MGUS, myeloma, or admyloidosis? CBC/met panel ok.

False positive rate: There is 30% or so false positive rate of kappa/lambda ratio in people without MGUS, myeloma or other disorders. 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.

?Find cause for Anem: You have anemia for which your doctors should find a cause. This requires doing a variety of tests which a good physician or a hematologist(blood specialist) can do. Unless already done, you need an examination of your bone marrow and more tests till we find the cause of your anemia. The light chains may be hinting at a possible cause which can be checked further with a bone marrow examination. ...Read more

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

Is it common to measure c-reactive protein in diagnosing majjor organ disease?

Is it common to measure c-reactive protein in diagnosing majjor organ disease?

Not common...: The thing about c-reactive protein is that it's not too specific - meaning, if it's elevated, it could be elevated for a bunch of reasons: infection, inflammation, etc... And it doesn't tell you which organ system has the infection or inflammation. We measure it sometimes in the hospital, but it's not one of those i've seen regularly ordered by primary care physicians as an outpatient. ...Read more

You're not your labs: Please forgive my frankness. Labs mean nothing in the absence of a history and physical exam. There are literally hundreds of causes of anemia. If you also have high MCV, you have pernicious anemia until proved otherwise, but any physician can perform a basic anemia workup and yours has a duty to explain the next steps to you. We'd also need the actual number even to do more guesswork. ...Read more

Depends...: There are many conditions that can result in protein in the urine. Perhaps the most common condition is a urinary tract infection. Unfortunately, if protein in the urine is diagnosed individually without any other signs of infection, the there needs to be a series of studies to assess for causes. These can be benign or progressive. You would need a nephrologist for this. ...Read more

Bioavailability: Whey protein (especially the hydrosylate and isolate processed variants) contain abundant amounts of branched chain Amino Acids in proportions compatible with the human body's needs.

The most common cause of proteinuria is diabetic nephropathy; in this case, proper glycemic control may slow the progression.
