Mouse Serum Proteins
I have had muscle pains in my arms and shoulders for six weeks. After some blood work it showed I have high serum proteins. Are they related?
Can fasting before bloodwork cause a lower total serum protein than if you ate just prior to the test?
My labs came back today and my serum protein is 8.3. Is this normal or should I be worried? I have to go back in a month to get it tested.
Elevated protein: The first question i would ask is, what is your albumin? If your serum Albumin is less than 50% of your total protein, you may have a paraproteinemia. Then, you would need to go to a hematologist and have a serum protein electrophoresis (ep) as well as an immunoglobulin ep of your blood. If you have any serious blood condition, these tests will diagnose it. Good luck. ...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
