High globulin and total protein levels. Google says 'concerning'. Doctor isn't worried. Why?

High globulin and total protein levels. Google says 'concerning'. Doctor isn't worried. Why?

Tx the pt, not the #: The levels you describe, can't be meaningfully interpreted since there's no clinical context (Why were the tests done? Were you ill when the tests were done? Are you feeling better?) "Google's statement is too general- abnormal levels can be "concerning" but doesn't have your doc's luxury of knowing your specific event. If you are still worried, Go ahead and ask your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

Recently I had lab work done. My globulin level was 5.8. My dr did further testing and total globulin was 4.9. My gamma globulin was a little elevated?

Recently I had lab work done. My globulin level was 5.8. My dr did further testing and total globulin was 4.9. My gamma globulin was a little elevated?

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, it would have helped to have the actual results. Elevated gamma globulins may indicate the presence of inflammation. ...Read more

What condition (s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?

What condition (s) causes someone to have high total serum protein, high albumin, normal globulin and high total calcium levels?

Dehydration.: There are no diseases that specifically increase albumin. Therefore in order to get an elevated concentration there must be a decrease in the amount of water in the system. This would also account for the normal globulin. Calcium is bound to Albumin so that elevated Albumin will elevate your calcium levels as well. ...Read more

My total proteins in 8.2, albumin 5.4, globulin 3.3, Total Bilirubin 0.7, direct 0.5. Is that something to worry? Other Liver values under normal.

Nothing to worry: Your Liver functions appear to be normal other than slightly high Albumin level. The latter finding is harmless. Why did you have these tests done in the first place??? ...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?

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

High Hs-CRP, high AGAP, high total protein, globulin and auto basophil?

High Hs-CRP, high AGAP, high total protein, globulin and auto basophil?

Means nothing alone: Please forgive my frankness. This mishmash of lab results is meaningless apart from your history and physical exam. Reference ranges for labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel well, ignore them. The high hs-CRP may be a heads-up that you've got more atherosclerosis than you think. If you feel well, ignore the rest. ...Read more

In blood work, does elevated gamma globulin (m-spike) often cause the total serum globulin to be elevated as well?

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. ...Read more

CMP & CBC are normal except Globulin is 4.2 & Total Protein is 8.4? I am freaking out w/ Dr. Google. 33 years old.....myeloma?

CMP & CBC are normal except Globulin is 4.2 & Total Protein is 8.4? I am freaking out w/ Dr. Google. 33 years old.....myeloma?

Unlikely: 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 is unlikely that you have myeloma. There are other causes of elevated globulins. However it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without physical examination and additional tests. Consult your doctor. ...Read more

What's globulin? And what cause to have high levels?

What's globulin? And what cause to have high levels?

Blood proteins: It's all of the blood proteins except albumin. Levels may be up in a host of illnesses too numerous to name, or you may simply be a bit high because you're one of the several percent of people who fall outside a range that is set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. You list yourself as having "colitis" and ulcerative colitis, crohn's and antibiotic colitis can raise it. ...Read more

What if I have lowered globulin levels?

Lowered immunity: Your globulins, manufactured in the liver, comprise, among other things, the immunoglobulins that make antibodies. Lowered globulins put your immune status at risk. Your doctor needs to determine the cause of your hypogqmmaglobulinemia. ...Read more

What is albumin and globulins?

What is albumin and globulins?

Serum proteins: The liquid part of blood left over, after blood clots is called serum and it contains many proteins. One type of protein is Albumin and a number of other proteins are lumped in a group called globulins.

How to decrease globulin level?

How to decrease globulin level?

Underlying cause: How much is your globulin level? What symptoms do you have? Who told you that you need to decrease your globulin level? Increased globulin level is usually due to chronic inflammation or tumor of the bone marrow. You need to address the underlying cause.
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.

What is the implication of elevated Beta Globulin?

What is the implication of elevated Beta Globulin?

Nothing by itself: Trivial elevations seen on serum protein electrophoresis reflect normal human variability. Very high transferrin in iron deficiency can raise beta globulin into a spike. Rare IgA monoclonal gammopathies can make a spike here. Otherwise, ignore it. ...Read more

What does having low globulin levels mean and how can I get it to normal?

Be more specific: There are lots of globulins & to answer your question we need to know the type and reason the test was done. People have a range of antibody levels, globulins in certain classes, IgA, IgG, Ig E, or specific globulins to a prior illnesses or vaccinations. Without knowing specifics we cannot provide a specific answer. You are welcome to start over. Posts are not linked so each must have all info. ...Read more

Can some people have elevate globulin levels and they have all test done and everything came back normal?

Can some people have elevate globulin levels and they have all test done and everything came back normal?

It happens sometimes: Lab results are just numbers. Their meaning depends on why tests were done and what is happening to the person. If there is nothing wrong with the person, then values inside the reference range, or a little outside the reference range, are usually not worrisome. Reference range includes about 95% (not 100%) of normal people, which means 5% of normal people have values outside the reference range. ...Read more
