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
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.

Are high lymphocytes (absolute and %) along with .2 abnormal protein band (m-protein) anything to worry about? Is further testing required?

Given the m-protein (small), I suggest immunofixation to determine polyclonal vs monoclonal. Polyclonal means infection or inflammation. Monoclonal means either benign or malignant plasma cell dz or lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Free light chains? Did your doctor state that you have protein in the urine? ...Read more
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

Are veggie sausages containing soya protein isolate n soya protein bad to eat say if u had 4 would that be too much soya. Also chocolate in one day?
A few thoughts: First, everything in moderation. Soy/textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a good product with a lot of protein/low cost. But TVP is highly manufactured and subjected to high heat etc in processing. TVP causes GI side effects in some people and is reported to mimic estrogen effects in women. Most also contains MSG. Can not really call it a health food..OK in moderation/2-3 servings per day. ...Read more

Hello. Actually I like to know if some one works out at gym and if they don't use protein powder, it would be harmful for body or not?? Thank you
Better to not use.: Protein powder is overrated. To gain muscle mass you have to work out for several hours a day for months to years. Protein powder alone will not increase muscle mass. High protein diets have many negative effects. What is your goal? How much do you work out? The best popular information I ever found is in "Weight training for athletes" by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who DOES NOTt recommend it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
