Total Protein Panel Dialysis Test
I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f
GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
I got a Total protein test and it was 8.9 normal range is 6.3-8.2. I have raynolds disease and my Dr ordered an SPEP test what does it mean?
SPEP: SPEP stands for serum protein electrophoresis. It is commonly used to separate out and identify abnormal protein in the blood called M-protein. Increased level of M-protein can be caused by infection, inflammation or cancer such as multiple myeloma. Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow, which can produce excessive monoclonal M-protein detected by SPEP. ...Read more
Blood results showing total protein at 87g/l and globulin at 39g/l with a A/G ratio of 1.2 , should I seek further test. cant afford to pay right now?
We normally see: results for total protein between 6 and 8.3 grams/deciliter for 87 g/l would be 8.7, I believe. And globulin at 39 g/l would be 3.9 g/dl: both are a little high. Causes of high protein are inflammation, infections or bone marrow disorder. You don't give me the albumin, the "A" in the A/G ratio. Your ratio is a little high (normal <1). While not urgent, I think this deserves further follow-up. ...Read more
D-dimer level .76 High. INR test 1.1 High. Total Protein 8.6 HIGH. Diffuse fatty infiltration liver. What could this mean?

It would require more information to settle the issue. However, if you are even slightly overweight, reduce you weight through diet and exercise, not easy, but essential. ...Read more
My recent check up, m.C.V. =100.Liver function tests, total protein =58. What is the significance of these 2 deficiencies? How to rectify?
Get more info: Both results show that you need to work with a doctor to find out causes and address the issues. The protein in your blood is made by your liver. Low protein can come from nutritional deficiencies or a liver problem: http://www.M.Webmd.Com/a-to-z-guides/total-serum-protein. A high MCV happens when blood cells are not made properly. The most common cause is vitamin B12 deficiency. ...Read more

After my liver function test,my results shows:total protein 84, albumin 48, globulin 36. Any problem with my health since i have higher total protein?
No: You may just not have enough water the day the blood was drawn. You were probably fasting and did not even drink water. ...Read more
Extremely fatigue ran blood test all in normal range except total protein 8.7, globulin slightly high, albumin boarder lined, is that why i'm tired?
Test result for Alk Phosphatase below standard range. Others (total bilirubin, bun, albumin, total protein) also low. What could this mean? Next step?
See your clinician: There may be nothing "wrong" with you. Note that no test is perfectly accurate. Also, if you're at very low risk for a disease, an abnormal result is less likely to be true. You need to sit down with a clinician to review your tests in light of your overall personal & family medical history, physical findings, & health goals. Next steps include further tests, & watch & wait. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
