In a nov 18, 2009 jama article, vitamin B12 and folate supplementation increased death from cancer. Some anti-cancer drugs work by blocking folate, part of the b vitamin pathway. I caution oversupplementing with b vitamins if you have had cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My ALB/GLOB Ratio has been at 0.9 on my last 3 blood tests. I take Arimidex (anastrozole). Could this medication be the cause of a low number?
Not low number: Hi. Most commonly, the low albumin:globulin ratio is NOT due to low albumin, but rather due to elevated globulin (so being the denominator, brings the ratio DOWN). Yours is reproducible. It should be evaluated, but I don't think it has anything to do with the Arimidex (anastrozole). I hope your breast CA is going well.
