What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?

What can cause a never before seen high protein level in the yearly blood test of a healthy 58 year old male?

Unclear question: 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.

Depends: 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.

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
