Proteinuria: Protein is normally not found in urine. Regardless of how much protein you take in, protein drinks or otherwise, normal kidneys/urinary system should not be allowing any protein in there. If protein is in the urine, there is a source of protein in the urine and the meaning of this needs to be looked at with any other lab abnormalities, signs/symptoms, clinical context. ...Read more
HIgh protein level: High blood protein (hbp) level can be caused by dehydration causing bengin elevation of proteins. Other more serious causes of hbp are chronic inflammation, ameyloidosis, hiv/aids, multiple myeloma and monoclonical gammopathies. I would suggest your seeing an hematologist if the cause of your hbp is not due to dehydration as soon as you can to arrive at the correct cause of your hbp level. ...Read more
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
No, but...: If a man's hemoglobin is more than 17.5 or thereabouts, it's worth trying to find the cause. Extremely viscous blood (igm, extremely polythemia) may require extra pressure to pump, but in such situations the problem is obvious. ...Read more

Anything above norma: Anything above normal. Diabetes is diagnosed by a glucose above 200 at any time or situation; a fasting (no food for 8 hours or more) greater than 100; a two hour post-meal glucose greater than 130-140. All of these are blood drawn in a lab, not finger sticks. An hba1c test of 6.5 or greater is also diagnostic for diabetes. For more info go to diabetes.Org. ...Read more
What does high prolactin levels with high red blood cells with high hemoglobin and hematocrit levels mean?
May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more
