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

Creatine in muscle: Muscles r mostly made of protein. Creatine (Cr) is from muscle breakdown & a blood test measuring it is often used 2 estimate how well the kidneys work. (Note high Cr means worse kidneys). Cr is also sold as a protein powder for body builders, but 1-2 servings shdn't raise the Cr very much. Regular intake, I suppose, cd have an effect. More likely something else was damaging ur kidney or muscles. ...Read more

What does high protein in blood indicate?

How high and which : Protein? Protein may be elevated if the person is dehydrated. If that is not the case, high protein is usually due to tumors of immunoglobulin producing cells, e.g., multiple myeloma or waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia. These are cancers of the bone marrow or lymph-nodes. Sometimes non-mailgnant, polyclonal increase in immunoglobulins may be high enough to raise the total protein to abnormal level. ...Read more
