What Does Low Protein In Blood Work Mean
Hi, I had blood work done at our local health fair, and my results came today. They indicate that I have an 8.5 total protein. What does that mean?
No worries.: Blood contains proteins in it and they serve very important purpose. There is an upper limit for the proteins to be in the blood and it is usually from 6 o 8.3. Your result is a tad bit higher than upper limit and does not warrant any specific worry. If you are concerned then get it checked again through your Physician and not to worry. Good luck. ...Read more
Dr.said my blood work was fine but globulin was high at4.4(norm 2.0-4.0)A/G ratio was low at .9(norm 1.0-2.4)Total protein and albumin normal.This ok?
Repeat the test.: Your albumin/globulin ratio will be low with a normal albumin and high globulin, since it is simple a ratio of tests. Higher globulin may mean a chronic inflammatory or infectious disease or condition, leukemia or other bone marrow disease, an autoimmune disease such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, liver or kidney disease. In your case, the globulin may be elevated due to a past cold or virus. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Follow up on my blood work came out good, protein, bun, apo b, hscrp, LP (a), sdldl & ldlp r high- hdl2, large HDL -p & HDL size are low.?

Risk sees to be best predicted by HDL particle number but we do not have any evidence that using medications to target HDL p or HDL size helps. Recently the national lipid association released a report suggesting not to use HDL sizing for risk evaluation. www.lipid.org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood work shows gam globulin low at 0.7 and M-spike,SPE, g/fl abnormal at 0.3. Two para protein bands in gam. Region. How serious is this?
Need more info: I am assuming that you had a serum electrophoresis performed for one reason or another. The "normal" and "abnormal" in this case can only be judged in context rather than in absolutes, so more information is necessary. Did you have a urine electrophoresis? Any other results? Free light chains? Did your doctor state that you have protein in the urine? ...Read more

I had a bunch of blood work done now my doctor wants me to get serum protein electrophesis and a urine protien electrophesis done! what does this mean?
Proteins: Simple blood & urine tests only reveal if protein is present. Electrophoresis uses electrical current to separate the different proteins into individual components to see if there are specific ones that r high or low. Some diseases r marked by spikes of a particular protein; others by a lack of a protein. ...Read more
