What Are The Effects Of Undigested Protein In The Blood And Body
Probably nothing: In 1930 hh donally reported an eloquent experiment in lactating women demonstrating that in virtually all normal persons undigested protein enters the bloodstream and can be detected in the skin. Foreign food proteins are commonly found in breast milk. Just because digestion is not completed in the gut does not mean that the gut is leaky or that these foreign proteins invariably cause disease. ...Read more
The liquid part of blood, plasma, carries proteins around the body.

It is not a condition, disease or anything to worry about. ...Read more
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
More than 5: There are many more than 5 proteins found in the blood. I suppose you could base them in broader categories: Albumin, Fibrinogen and other clotting factors, Globulins, and regulatory proteins. Albumin provides oncotic pressure to the vascular system. Fibrinogen and associated clotting factors -self explanatory. Globulins are part of the immune system and regulatory proteins serve many fxns ...Read more

HIgh protein level: High blood protein (hbp) level can be caused by dehydration causing bengin elevation of proteins. Other more serious causes of hbp are chronic inflammation, ameyloidosis, hiv/aids, multiple myeloma and monoclonical gammopathies. I would suggest your seeing an hematologist if the cause of your hbp is not due to dehydration as soon as you can to arrive at the correct cause of your hbp level. ...Read more
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
Blood ; protein: This means there is a small amount of some source of blood ; protein in the urine ; the meaning of this needs to be looked at with any other lab abnormalities, signs/symptoms, clinical context. If nothing else abnormal, then blood with protein is entering your urine in some way. Are there symptoms like burning with urine, flank pain, recent infection, etc? See your doctor for more assistance. ...Read more
Not per se!: High blood protein can indicate one of two things, most commonly: 1. Stress. Vascular arterial constriction will increase protein and hemoglobin. 2. This is more likely. High proteins usually indicate high globulins, not albumin, a healthy protein. Globulins equate with inflammation, which is bad. Therefore it is important to find out why you have elevated proteins, which can be done simply! ...Read more
