Can a low a/g ratio, 0.56, be due to constrictive pericarditis?

In brief: Not sure....

Constrictive pericarditis is caused by stiffening of the sca around the heart (pericardium).
It manifests as shortness of breath, fatigue, and severe swelling. It is diagnosed by catheterization or echocardiography. I haven't idea what and a/g ratio is - it not a common diagnostic test.

In brief: Not likely

It is better to look at the actual values and not just the ratio.
All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that.
