Slightly Elevated Serum Globulin And Arthritis
Arthritis is progressive degeneration of one or more joints. Symptoms may include joint pain, swelling, decreased motion, and stiffness. The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, which is associated first with articular cartilage breakdown with a component of inflammation, and rheumatoid arthritis, which is a systemic autoimmune disorder that affects joint linings first and secondarily ...Read more
In blood work, does elevated gamma globulin (m-spike) often cause the total serum globulin to be elevated as well?
No: Vulval dermatitis is a local issue and usually has no systemic manifestations including changes in the level of globulin. I wonder if you do have changes in the globulin level and vulval lesions, the latter being a manifestation of another systemic disease and not vulval dermatitis per se. ...Read more
My total bilurubin 0.88 direct bilurubin 0.37 indirect bilurubin is 0.51, serum globulin is 3.27 Are these levels normal?
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, your globulin level is higher than normal. It can be due to many causes, e.g., chronic infection, inflammatory disorders, liver disease and myeloma. Please discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my total bilurubin 0.88 direct bilurubin 0.37 indirect bilurubin is 0.51, serum globulin is 3.27 is it normal?
May be: 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, while your numbers are within normal limits, these numbers do not convey the full picture. It is better to discuss the entire lab report with your doctor. ...Read more
What can cause low serum globulin, 1.5 (reference cutoff 1.6)? Can slightly low globulin have an affect on the accuracy of other labs?
May not be anything.: It's not clear if such a small reduction means anything. Globulin on a chemistry panel measures a group of blood proteins that include antibodies. A low globulin can mean lowered immunity, but not always. Additional testing (quantitative immunoglobulins) should be done to verify normal immune function. ...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
