Serum Thyroxine Binding Globulin
Raised Liver ALT&GGT,no history of being raised before - don't drink. Only new med is thyroxine.Bilrub,ALP,protein,albumin,globulin normal.why raised?
How raised?: 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, it would have been helpful to have the actual values. As a rule of thumb, it the values are more three times the normal limit, it is not an emergency and you may see your doctor at your convenience. ...Read more
Exercise & fat loss: Sex hormone binding globulin (shbg) is related to estrogen levels which are related to body fat. So the non-drug way to get around this is via exercise & nutrition in order to get rid of excess body fat, esp around your gut. If you can't lower your estrogen levels enough, some physicians (myself included) will attempt an off-label trial of an aromatase inhibitor to stop your body's conversion of t. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on profile: Serum protein levels are made up of a variety of proteins, albumin, as well as alpha, beta and gamma globulins. If you get a serum protein electrophoresis, the relative quantities of these proteins can be assessed. Most commonly, the Albumin level can go up or down depending on fasting levels. The other levels can go up or down depending on disease conditions or medications. See your internist. ...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
Could severe seasonal allergies cause a chance in serum globulin? Globulin went up to 34 from 29 back in November.
No: Agree with Dr Chiu. And the increase in serum globulin is marginal. But why are you checking serum globulin that often? Not really a routine test, unless there is another problem being followed, and that was back in November, 8 months ago. If no other health problem, and just seasonal allergies, disregard those figures, best wishes ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My Globulin (serum) result was 3.69 g/dL and the Albumin (serum) result was 4.11 g/dL. Lab amounts were 2.50-3.50 for Globulin should I be worried?
Gamma Globulin 1.8 slightly high
The rest normal.
No paraprotien spike seen.
IGE Serum 151 H
IgG 1768 H
Should I worried do i have MM .
Get monitored: This elevated IgG is compatible with MM which requires monitoring by an oncologist. Not to be too worried but to be more aware. ...Read more
