What Does High Protein In Blood Test Mean
I had a blood test and the results said I have high c reactive protein, I have to have more blood tests. What does this mean?
Inflammation: C reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of inflammation. There are two types of CRP test, one for conventional inflammation like pneumonia, abscess etc. The other, high sensitivity crp, is a marker for heart disease. Without knowing your whole history and lab results it is not practical to be more helpful. ...Read more

What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?
If you are talking about total serum proteins, it may be because you were dehydrated due to not drinking water for the fasting blood test. The other major cause is increase in gamma globulins due to inflammation or tumor of the plasma cells. The starting point of the investigation would be serum protein electrophoresis.

Had C-reactive protein blood test. It shows my level is 1.55 (normal is anything under. 80). Is mine considered really high??
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you did not provide the units of the result, however, it does not seem too high. See this site for more information on this topic.

Is it dangerous that when I do the reactivate protein serum blood test, the result always high. The last time, it was 8mg/l and before was 14mg/l?
C-reactive protein: I've watched this formerly-arcane old test gain new popularity. While it's probably a marker for many things, including sometimes an open atherosclerotic plaque somewhere, nobody's claiming that a level somewhat higher than other folks', esepcially if you seem young and healthy, is a sign of a life likely to be cut short or any need for treatment. Eager to hear from others. ...Read more
Recently I've done a blood test in portugal, the results showed, placelets 148 10e9/l, ref 150-400, and protein 8.2 g/dl, ref 6.4-8.2, what means?
Normal: Protein's within the reference range, especially if you hadn't drunk a lot of water before the test. Reference rangers are designed to include around 95% of normal people, and a minimally-low platelet level on a single draw means nothing whatsoever. ...Read more
I had a thorough blood test which came back normal (inc protein, vit d)-apart from my standard calcium being high. My corrected calcium she said this is fine so not to worry, - is this correct and ok?
Yes: A separate ionized calcium test is done if you have factors that increase or decrease total calcium levels. It is the ionized calcium that is the true measure of active calcium. It sounds like you are in good shape. No worries. ...Read more
My blood test showed "slightly elevated" BUN (25mg). However, I eat a high protein diet and my Dr did not tell me to fast or avoid eating protein before the test. Are these results valid?
Many or none: It depends on the numbers and your general health, symptoms, and physical examination. Often a blood test that is just above or below the normal range is still normal. Talk to your medical provider about the tests. ...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?
Complex: We start treatment on our infants who have fever or the mother has an infection/fever. There are supporting tests (complete blood count and c-reactive protein) that may support but not prove infection. The gold standard is the blood culture that takes 48 hrs to come back (+ or -). Regardless of all that the physician must make a clinical decision about how long to treat the infantbased on these &. ...Read more

Protein found in my urine sample. Doctor recommended I take a blood test. What does it mean to have protein in my urine? Which blood test do I take?
Proteinuria: Proteinuria is a condition, not a diagnosis. It can be caused by several diseases, among them hiv, diabetes, lupus, membranous glomerulonephritis, among others. You need to see a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collected to assess your kidney function and how much protein your urine has in it. The nephrologist will also take blood tests to rule out the conditions, and others, discussed above. ...Read more
I recently had a urine and blood test. Results show egfr @ 53, creatinine @ 1.35 and protein urine @ 123.7. Does this mean renal failure?
Renal failure?: You do not have renal failure. What you have is chronic kidney disease. To find what what your actual GFR is, you need to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein, as well as another lab test to get the creatinine at the time of your urine collection. You will also need a renal ultrasound. See a nephrologist for the best treatment of your chronic kidney disease and proteinuria. ...Read more
I had a blood test and 2 things were higher than the cutoff. In the urinalysis the urn total protein was 19.0 mg/dl and the urn red blood count was 10 hpf. Any ideas on what this means?
More info needed.: If you were having a period when the urinalysis was done, the red cells and protein could be explained by that. But not so fast! Red cells are not normally seen in the urine at this amount, and neither is protein. Depending on your age and overall health, these finding could be early warning signs for important concerns like kidney disease or even a cancer. Find out the best next step for you! ...Read more
I'm doing the 24 hr urine creatitine total protein test and a few blood test to check my liver and kindeys...I know the doctor suspects preeclampsia. But does it mean I for sure have it? Just because im doing test or is that why im doing them?
Proceed with caution: The tests you mention are a way to look for the early warning signs of a condition that is potentially deadly for you& baby. Preeclampsia (pe) can progress without obvious symptoms you would feel, so looking at the tests is a cautious way of preparing to act if specialized rx is needed. Many are tested that won't progress to pe & sometimes the tests are repeated over several days when needed. ...Read more
