High Protein Levels Blood Causes
What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?
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.

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

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
