Find cause: This may be as simple as a protein-poor diet (some of the fad / "green" diets can do this), or reflect low Albumin from liver disease, kidney protein wasting (nephrotic syndrome), myeloma, inflammatory bowel syndrome, or any of a host of illnesses. And some folks just genetically make little albumin. Good luck; a lab value means nothing out of context. Read more

Fibrinogen and associated clotting factors -self explanatory. Globulins are part of the immune system and regulatory proteins serve many fxns Read more
