A cmp blood test says albumin/globulin ratio is 2.6 (says normal range is 1-2.1). What is this ratio, and what do results mean? Should i be concerned?

I wouldn't worry: High albumin doesn't occur except in dehydration which also raises globulin, so your total globulin is a bit low overall. Chances are you're one of the folks who makes less in the way of antibodies than other folks, at least right now. This level's no danger to you. These investigations are seldom productive and if you feel well, I'd simply be thankful for good health and keep an eye on it. ...Read more

What is a normal urine creatinine level?

No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker.

Labs results normal? Had a comp metabolic panel w/egfr egfr non-afr american 89 ml/min/1.73m2. What is this lab test? And is this result normal?

Labs results normal? Had a comp metabolic panel w/egfr egfr non-afr american  89 ml/min/1.73m2. What is this lab test? And is this result normal?

What does elevated IgM means in serum electrophoresis, everything else is at normal values? Patient expirienced frequently angioedemas recently? Thank

What does elevated IgM means in serum electrophoresis, everything else is at normal values? Patient expirienced frequently angioedemas recently? Thank

Depends: The IgM elevation would depend on how high & whether it is monoclonal or polyclonal. If the value is just moderately elevated, it may signal the presence of a current infection which can potentially be the cause for the angioedema. On the other hand, it is more likely that it has nothing to do with your angioedema at all. Consult an allergist if this remains an issue. ...Read more

As with any subtle abnormal lab test, it should always be repeated to make sure it is not a false positive. ...Read more
