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.

In brief: 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.
