I have been told my blood is too thick, that I have low blood protein and a high white cell count. What could this be, I am really worried

Requires Follow-up: You should follow-up with your md who gave you this information. You will require further testing. What you discribe is too general to pinpoint the etiology. What you do need to know is that whatever you have is treatable. Do all the testing your md requests and ask the md to please explain to you what your tests are for and what possible diagnosis the md has inmind. Your md is there to help you. ...Read more

Follow up on my blood work came out good, protein, bun, apo b, hscrp, LP (a), sdldl & ldlp r high- hdl2, large HDL -p & HDL size are low.?

Follow up on my blood work came out good, protein, bun, apo b, hscrp, LP (a), sdldl & ldlp r high- hdl2, large HDL -p & HDL size are low.?

Gets complicated: Bottom line is sub-fractions of HDL cholesterol and measurement so of HDL size or particle number is still not considered routine. Risk sees to be best predicted by HDL particle number but we do not have any evidence that using medications to target HDL p or HDL size helps. Recently the national lipid association released a report suggesting not to use HDL sizing for risk evaluation. www.lipid.org. ...Read more

Repeat the test.: Your albumin/globulin ratio will be low with a normal albumin and high globulin, since it is simple a ratio of tests. Higher globulin may mean a chronic inflammatory or infectious disease or condition, leukemia or other bone marrow disease, an autoimmune disease such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, liver or kidney disease. In your case, the globulin may be elevated due to a past cold or virus. ...Read more

Blood work shows gam globulin low at 0.7 and M-spike,SPE, g/fl abnormal at 0.3. Two para protein bands in gam. Region. How serious is this?

Blood work shows gam globulin low at 0.7 and M-spike,SPE, g/fl abnormal at 0.3.  Two para protein bands in gam. Region. How serious is this?

Need more info: I am assuming that you had a serum electrophoresis performed for one reason or another. The "normal" and "abnormal" in this case can only be judged in context rather than in absolutes, so more information is necessary. Did you have a urine electrophoresis? Any other results? Free light chains? Did your doctor state that you have protein in the urine? ...Read more

Unrelated: There are no diseases associated with a low red cell distribution width (RDW). A high total protein does not in and of itself suggest the presence of autoimmune disease. ...Read more
