What Does Protein Band 1 Mean
Bone marrow disorder: It means that you are making too much of a single antibody or just a part of an antibody because one clone of plasma cells from your bone marrow has developed over the normal population. This can be a benign condition for many years or progress into a condition called multiple myeloma that needs treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I heard our bodies only absorb about 25 grams of protein every one or two hours. Does that mean if i eat more than that, then it's a waste?
Need more info: 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, An M spike may be a benign monoclonal gammopathy or a marker for a bone cancer.

What does ABNORMAL PROTEIN BAND 1, SER/PLAS, BAND 2 and BAND 3 mean on labs. It doesn't give values. All other labs are normal.
Protein band: If this is a serum electrophoresis or immunoelectrophoresis it suggests presence of an abnormal protein such as seen in gammopathy or multiple myeloma. A hematologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you and further testing,such as bone marrow biopsy, may be advised depending upon that assessment. ...Read more
C1 Esterase Inhibitor Panel had two functional and one protein level. The protein level was 11 (20-40 ml/dL). What does that mean? Other two normal.
Makes no sense: C1INH assays may show low C1INH (which you appears to have) or normal C1INH level with impaired functioning if you are looking for the typical cases of hereditary edema. If the quantity is low, there cannot be normal functioning. If you do have HAE, treatment should be started promptly to prevent throat swelling. ...Read more
I took a Lumbar Puncture test and one result came back, CSF protein 46...what does this count mean?
How accurate are urine dip sticks? Did one at Dr office and showed protein in urine. Can it mean uti? Dr taking it to lab for culture.
Quite accurate: Trace protein in the urine is never worrisome by itself. +1 may be worth a workup. +2 is worth investigating. The usual cause is orthostatic proteinuria -- if you're well otherwise, see if your first-voided morning specimen is free of protein, and if it is, you know you're someone who gets proteinuria from standing up -- no big deal. Best wishes. ...Read more

My CSF results show normal cell count but show inflammatory proteins-oligoclonal bands, what does this mean please?
Oligoclonal bands: These proteins are immunoglobulins usually detected by separating the proteins in an electric field-charged gel. Many CNS diseases are associated with their presence, but most commonly they are tested for when there is concern about multiple sclerosis. Since many diseases can cause the abnormality, finding them is not specific and must be correlated with symptoms and other findings. ...Read more

I did an experiment, i replaced all meat with soy protein.one month later, muscle mass didn't change.does that mean soy doesn't lower testosterone?
Protein and T: Muscle mass is controlled by many factors. Dietary protein is one, but if you have adequate dietary protein, as you likely did originally, then more protein will not help. Soy protein does not lower T. That is a myth. If you're a normal male, your T is what it is, and is controlled by your pituitary. If you want more muscle, then you need to do resistance exercise training. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is harmless: Proteins in food are important, most adults require 50-60 grams per day. So anything over 70-80 grams is excessive. But proteins are harmless, the body can digest , use them as needed and get rid of the extra through the urine..So the excess is basically wasted via the urine. ...Read more
Animal protein!: Proteins that are not plant based have proportional amino axcid composition to your body's muscle. Lean fish, poultry, and meat. Milk protein is great, as are eggs. The least expensive supplements are made of whey protein (milk). Don't pay more for "hydrolyzed" proteins (pre-digested into amino acids. The claims they work better are unsubstantiated! ...Read more
I had a upep test done and all the result says is protein quantitive 22.1 mg/dl What does this mean?
Proteinuria: My interpretation of that result would to consider that amount of proteinuria as very mild and doesn't suggest significant kidney damage. However we don't see the breakdown of the types of protein(qualitative) in your report. Your ordering physician,who knows all your findings, is best qualified to answer your question. ...Read more
