Electrophoresis : albumine 49 ( normal 56-66%). Gamma 24 ( normal 11-19). Ves 24 ( normal < 15), CRP 5 ( normal 0-0, 5). Is it all fault of obesity?
Probably more: This low an Albumin with what i will assume at your age is a polyclonal gammopathy makes me concerned about serious systemic disease or severe liver disease. Your obesity may have given you non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or you may have something else badly wrong.

What does an elevated Gloublin of 4.2 mean?? (Normal range is 2.0-4.0)
Albumin normal at 3.9 (Normal range is 3.5-5.0).
Probably nothing: This is such a minor elevation, it probably just means you were fighting off a cold or minor infection and the antibodies in your immune system (which are made of globulins) were slightly elevated when you took this test. I would repeat it when you are feeling completely well, and if it is still elevated, discuss further testing with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Good luck! ...Read more

See below: 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, low albumin and high PSA point to at least two organ systems not working properly. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without more history, examination and may be tests and that only be done in-person by your doctor. ...Read more
