What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?

What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?

Unclear question: If you are talking about total serum proteins, it may be because you were dehydrated due to not drinking water for the fasting blood test. The other major cause is increase in gamma globulins due to inflammation or tumor of the plasma cells. The starting point of the investigation would be serum protein electrophoresis.

Had routine blood work recently done, all came back normal expect for my calcium levels slightly high -10.5, Protein 8.3, Albumin 5.2. I'm female.?

High calcium: Levels may mean that you are slightly dehydrated, or it may be real. Your albumin is normal so it is not a factor in falsely low calcium levels. At 10.5 it may be a normal variant (reference range 10.4). I would have it checked again in 1 month to be sure. ...Read more

What causes high protein, leukocytes & white blood cells?

Proteinuria/pyuria: Leucocytes are white blood cells (wbcs). So, high protein and high wbcs equals infection until proven otherwise by a negative urine culture. Take infection out of the equation, then some time or damage to the kidney filters is next on my list, but when this happens there is usually red cells in the urine. This takes me back to urine infection or some other type of genitourinary infection. ...Read more

24hr urine (5000mL) creatinine, protein, and albumin results are high - about double the max normal, but blood is normal. What would cause this?

Proteinuria: With certain kidney pathology there can be heavy amounts of protein lost in the urine due to glomerular pathology but the rest of the kidney function can be good enough so that blood tests for kidney function are still normal. A nephrologist can better explain your status after evaluating you and all your pertinent test results. ...Read more

What is high serum blood protein associated with? This Lead to a ANA which detected sjrogrens. I am not sure now why keeping high blood levels.

Increased: Immunoglboulins. Sjogren is associated with chronic inflammation and elevated serum immunoglobulins so that total serum proteins are increased. It is not the serum proteins, but the underlying disorder that needs to be treated. You may consult this site for info:

Constant low blood protein levels (5.8). I am an active 57 yr male with high protein diet- donates plasma twice a week. Now levels too low to donate?

Albumen dominant &: Typically the reason the total protein is low. Healthy albumen concentrations typically 4.0 & up, 1/2 in blood only ~14 hrs. If low, this reflects liver problems, e.g. steatosis from too many carbs (converted to fat in liver) or any of a variety of other possibilities. Study: https://en. Wikipedia.

It is elevated after surgery, with cancer of the lymph nodes, vasculitis such as lupus, or chronic infections such as chronic infections of the bone. The high white count and high neutrophil count could be due to infection. The abnormal lymphocytes could be due to lymphoma or viral infection. Get checked ASAP. ...Read more

I have lupus and concerned with my test results having high levels of protein and blood in my urine. Infection and blood clot in my kidney last year.?

I'm concerned too: Lupus produces problems with the kidney filters more often than not, and this usually announces itself as blood and protein in the urine. Your physician knows how to manage this with others labs. If you had a renal vein thrombosis, it's very serious and you need long-term management by a competent nephrologist.
