What does a high protein count mean in my blood work?

What does a high protein count mean in my blood work?

Depends: If all the proteins were elevated, you were probably dehydrated. If a specific protein is elevated then it needs to be determined which protein. Some causes of elevated proteins are chronic infections, liver disease and multiple myeloma. ...Read more

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.?

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.?

Gets complicated: Bottom line is sub-fractions of HDL cholesterol and measurement so of HDL size or particle number is still not considered routine. 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 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 more

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

Total hip replacement 1 year ago.  Having pain. MD ordered blood work.  It shows high Polys (80.1), and low Lymphs (15.3), high c-reactive protein?

Possible infection: Elevations of polys and C-reactive protein in the blood is suggestive of an inflammatory response as with infection. There are other less common reasons for these particular elevations, and should be interpreted in context with your medical history, other lab results, medications and physical findings. ...Read more
