Slightly Elevated Globulin
Underlying disease: Elevated gamma globulin is not a disorder by itself but a manifestation of some underlying disease and that cause needs to be treated. ...Read more
Depends: on how high it is and whether it is "monoclonal* or not. A value even up to 20-30% higher than predicted usually means nothing in the absence of disease. ...Read more
Can fasting cause an elevated (4.2) globulin level? What about fasting followed by a high protein meal before the test?
Recently I had lab work done. My globulin level was 5.8. My dr did further testing and total globulin was 4.9. My gamma globulin was a little elevated?
Need more info: 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 helped to have the actual results. Elevated gamma globulins may indicate the presence of inflammation. ...Read more
In blood work, does elevated gamma globulin (m-spike) often cause the total serum globulin to be elevated as well?
What does elevated Igg-2364 and gamma globulin 2.2 mean with polyclonal gammopathy and Kappa and lambda typing increased?
Nothing serious: Polyclonal gammopathy does not have the seriousness of monoclonal gammpathy. Firstly your IgG and total globulin levels are only mildly elevated, so It may not mean any disease. One cause is chronic inflammation(infections) such as Chronic arthritis or chronic liver disease, conditions which can be checked out or ruled out easily if you ask your doctor and seek his/her advice about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why would pcp refer me to hematologist due to elevated protein in blood (elevated gamma globulin)? Is this something to be concerned about?
Further evaluation: There are many reasons for elevation of the serum protein. The hematologist is the best person to guide the work-up to determine if you have something like myeloma or other plasma cell dyscrasia or a non-malignant cause of the elevated protein level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Healthy young female. Two blood tests(normal check-up). Liver test showed elevated total protein and globulin. Other parameters absolutely normal.Why?
My globulin levels are elevated to a 4.2. All other things tested on my blood test were all normal. Can a high protein diet or stress cause it?
How do you feel?: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel okay, I would not give this another thought. ...Read more
I have history of elevated blood protein(8.3-8.7 since 09). Recently did spep with elevated gamma globulin. Why would pcp refer me to hematologist?
Elevated gamma glob: Do you have an m-spike detected on your serum protein electrophoresis? Do you have an imimmunofixation electrophoresis? If you do have m-spike detected- your pcp refers you to see hematologist to make sure you don't have plasma cell disorder etc. Elevated gamma glob alone without m-spike or abnormal ife- could be caused by inflammation, infection etc. Ask this question to your pcp. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What can cause elevated alkaline phosphatase, beta globulin, TIBC, Compliment 3 +4 , C-react.Protein and low ferritin, MCV, MCG and iron saturation?
Low iron: Elevated alk phos is seen with liver and bone disorder. Iron deficiency is suspected, but chronic inflammation may cause most of the lab abnormalities. A hematologist could shed some light on these varied lab abnormalities. Collaboration with a rheumatologist would also be helpful to identify a chronic inflammatory process. ...Read more
Labs came back abnormal. My wbc, testosterone, platelets, globulin and uibc were elevated. My creatinine&vitaminD are low. Should I be worried?
Somewhat: Vit D deficiency can cause serious problems but is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of D3/day- avoid D2! Low creatinine not a problem- just indicates you don't have much muscle mass. High WBC, platelets and globulin may indicate a bacterial infection or autoimmune issues. High testosterone may be related to PCOS. Worry just enough to see your doctor soon for further evaluation and treatment! ...Read more
Testing for AL amyloid. SPEP shows no M-spike but mildly elevated total protein & A/G ratio (2.7) due to high albumin. Globulins well within normal range. Worrisome? Serum/urine IFE &marrow biopsy ok, but elevated free K/L ratio due to low lambda.
What might expln: tsh:2.475, t3:3, t4:1.1, testo.F:1.8, test.T:38 similarly fsh, lh, 17hydrox all normal -but sex hormone binding globulin elevated at 184?
Need reverse T3 (liothyronine): Just commenting on the thyroid labs: i think you may have a slight hypothyroid problem, but hard to tell without complete labs. Is the T3 (liothyronine) a total or free? Also reverse T3 (liothyronine) needs to be done to know for sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
